We are planning to go by car to Paris for a few (2-4) days. As I'm a bit afraid of crashing my car or having trouble parking I was thinking of leaving it somewhere outside Paris and continue by train/bus/metro.

Are these kind of park-and-rides available near Paris? Can I find somewhere a list of options, including their prices?

(I'll be approaching Paris from the north, the A1 probably)

    Why not Lille? Paris is just one hour away by TGV.

Depending on your budget - there are hotels that have garages. We stayed in one a couple of years ago and our car was in their garage for 4 nights we stayed for no extra charge. Then we proceeded to Normandie. It was a medium priced hotel in Montmartre. It is really fun to drive in Paris!

  • This is what we ended up doing. We actually went to Montreuil and parked our car in the garage of the hotel (was €10,- a night).

The Eurotunnel website has a great list of park & rides.

Coming from the north, I'd suggest Stade de France - porte de Paris, this is just near the A1 and well-connected to Paris via RER B & D and métro line 13 (prefer using RER since the line 13 is notoriously crowded).

Another option is La Courneuve - 8 mai 1945. You'll be at the noth end of the métro line 7 (pink one), this line will get you to the Louvre in ~20 min.
