Reaching CAMECA from CDG airport

By taxi or car (20-30min):

Warning: beware of "rogue taxi drivers" roaming CDG! They will usually approach you and assure you that their fare is cheaper. You should not believe them! It is far better and much cheaper to stand in the line for an official taxi. The price for your trip from CDG airport to CAMECA headquarters in Gennevilliers should be around 40 EUR (day time).

Take highway A1 south (Paris) then the A86 west (Nanterre, La Defense). After passing along the "Stade de France" soccer stadium (on your right), take exit 7 towards "La Defense" business center. You are now on road D7, along the Seine river. After 1km, you will see a large "Panzani" factory on your right. Stay on the right lane of the D7 ("Gennevilliers centre, St Ouen") and do no take the underpass ("Asnieres, La Défense") but cross the street at ground level.
CAMECA is located 200m after the crossing, on the right side of the river bank ("quai des Grésillons", also referenced as D7 road). On the other side of the river, slighly more toward La Defense, you see big chimneys of a recycling factory.
Enter the plant and take the slope up toward the parking: the visitor's entrance is on the first level.
