Travel Forums Europe Flight Connection In Paris...should I leave the airport???

I'm gonna ask my travel agent the same question. I am leaving to Budapest in about 2.5 weeks. I have a connection flight in Paris. The layover is roughly about 4 hours. I am not an experianced traveller outside the US (been to europe once).

I really want to check out the eiffel tower but am I taking a big chance of missing my flight by doing this? I am allowed to this with my wife since she has a green card? I was planning on just staying outside the airport for about 45-60 mins.

Thanks

most probably you need to transfer to an another terminal (there are 4 terminals in CDG airport) which takes about 30 min.

the end terminal of airbus is just by the Eiffel tower and takes some 60 min - so you have no more that 1h spare one.

I would rather rest in the airport and see Paris on a return part of your journey or the next time
