Advice please for connecting AF flights at CDG

Reposting a question I asked on the Air travel forum since people here would have a lot of experience with CDG.

I last travelled through CDG in 2001 and it was a nightmare experience, with confusing signage, lost baggage, getting mixed up with the shuttles to the terminals (this was my own fault) etc and I have carefully avoided the airport ever since. However that was many years ago and things must surely have improved. In my forum searches I found many references to a website easycdg.com for practical information, but it doesn't seem to work, so I would be very grateful for any advice.

I'm considering a very good deal with Air France which involves transitting through CDG. The itinerary Air France is suggesting has a connecting time of 1 hour and 20 minutes between the various flights (Italy-Germany and back, on the same booking with AF), they're all in the Schengen zone and all arrivals/departures are from Terminal 2F. I'd only have cabin baggage, and would have my boarding cards. Does this look feasible or is the connecting time too tight? I'm also assuming that transit passengers would not have to go through security again but just go to the boarding gate, is this right?

A small bonus is that there is a Laduree at CDG which the airport website says is in the Schengen area while the Laduree website shows a cart. Is it an actual tearoom like the one at Orly Ouest?

Thank you.

If all arrivals/departures are through terminal 2F, you just follow the 'Flight Connections' signs then proceed to your departure gate.

And you don't need to restrict yourself to cabin baggage as any checked luggage will be transferred through to your destination.

Thank you, wirewiper. That link is still not working for me, perhaps it's a problem with my computer.

On arrival, just go to the Air France Transfer Desk for instructions.

There are two sets of gates in 2F. If you arrive in one and depart from the other, there may be an airside shuttle.

Air France does not book impossible connections. It's wandering around the airport on your own that results in missed connections.
