I have never looked forward to layovers at De Gaulle airport. However, we had to stay overnight on our last trip as we couldn't get a same day connection coming from southern France. We were too tired to go into Paris, but at least wanted to get in a bit of walking exercise. We were staying at the airport Hilton outside Terminal 3, but learned there was a free shuttle into Roissy-en-France where most nearby hotels were located. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the village and located a delightful small restaurant that provided an exceptional meal and was an excellent conclusion to our time in France.
