Another last warning: onsite parking is very difficult and there won’t be any guarantee that you will have a parking place when you arrive. The simplest and cheapest solution is to reserve your parking place on line (only €14 for 12 hours parking) and then you can calmly take the 3a tram for 7 minutes to the Parc des Expositions (5 stops from the Jean Moulin stop in the direction of Pont Garigliano/Hôpital européen George Pompidou). You will avoid interminable waits in the parking lot, and you will be sure to have a parking place when you arrive!
