The capital of France is one of the most visited cities in Europe; a flourishing centre of arts, history, fashion and culture. It has two principal airports. Roissy Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG) is the main hub for passengers and cargo in the city. With two runways and three terminals, it has the capacity to handle 118 aircraft movements in an hour. It is the hub for Air France-KLM, FedEx and La Post. The secondary airport is Paris-Orly; of the two, it is closest to the city, situated about 13km away. It is an important hub for the Ile-de-France region. Planes that leave from this airport serve over 143 cities within and outside Europe.
CDG Airport is accessible in several ways. From Paris centre, trains such as RER B and SNCF Main Lines go to the airport. The automatic shuttle train CDGVAL connects the three terminals. Buses and coaches also serve CDG from various points in the city (Le Bus Direct lines 2, 3 and 4 as well as Roissybus). Otherwise, taxis, shuttles and van services are available for passengers. Orly Airport, on the other hand, is well-connected via the A6 or A10 highways. There is also an RER commuter train from the city in addition to taxis and shuttles.
Rome may be considered one open air museum with architectural structures and ruins that greet visitors in every corner. Walk along its streets and stumble upon the intriguing Roman Forum, imposing Pantheon or the Baroque-styled Trevi Fountain. Next door is the independent state of the Vatican with glorious treasures to offer including the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Of course, no trip to Rome is complete without mentioning food. It is part of the culture with heavenly eats that range from cheap to expensive, but all the same excellent Italian cuisine. For those who love shopping, there are markets to browse and luxury stores to peruse.
