To get from Orly Airport to Paris city centre, you will need to catch the OrlyBus at one of two stops located directly outside the arrivals hall of each of the two terminal buildings (Terminal Sud and Terminal Ouest).

Tickets cost €12.30 and can be purchased at the ticket offices outside of the Airport’s exit. There is also a €1.90 surcharge applicable to those with luggage.

Once at Place Denfert-Rochereau, you can board the nearby metro line 6 which will take you directly to the city centre and other areas of interest around Paris.
