Our advice is don't do it !!!.....use another form of transport .
If you need convincing not to drive in Paris check out this video. This is at the notorious roundabout at the 'Arc de Triomphe', the roads are not all like this but after a long-haul flight or for your first time in the city - it may be best to avoid driving.
If you you really must drive then you can check out your route into Paris from the airport: here
For central Paris take autoroute A6, Porte d'Orleans to take you away from the airport. You set out following the signs to Paris centre and as you get closer to the city you need to know what direction on the circular ‘peripherique’ you need to take, west or east. If you want to reach the heart of the city then head west and exit at Port Mallot. Check with your hotel or holiday provider as to which exit on the peripherique to take. We would advise you to try and get into / stay in the the two right-hand lane as this should increase you chances of actually reaching your preferred exit. You can see a video of the drive along the peripherique here........ Also check out our 'Driving in France' page here......
