Maps vs Road Atlas France road trip

Jump to last reply

Working on maps, talked to local store here today, but they did not seem to have experience.

Roughly we will be driving from Chartres, through the Loire, to Dordogne and then from Carcassonne, to Aigues Mortes, to St. Remy. We will be exploring the Luberon and area around St. Remy.

The recommendation today was to buy a Michelin Road Atlas for France instead of iindividual maps. Looking at the size of the individual maps the road atlas did seem better. And it is more cost effective to buy the atlas, considering the route we are taking. Of course tthey did not have one.

I I googled Michelin Road Atlas for France and found that there were two.

We will have a GPS, but will be much more comfortable with a good road map.

Do you have recommendations?
