Which Michelin Map options?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,
I'm hoping you can help me select the right combo of Michelin paper maps, or tell me about the Michelin France Atlas (and whether that's a better alternative to carrying around the 5-6 maps I think I need.)

We'll be driving from Paris, to the Loire, to Burgundy, and then to Chamonix on this trip. For 2 weeks! Yay! We'll have our iPhones (and maybe even navigation in the car, not sure yet)... but I still rely heavily on old school paper maps, and they're great for planning our route the night before.

From our Loire trip 2 years ago, we already have the 2 pertinent Loire Valley maps: the Michelin Regional 518 (orange) and Local 317 (yellow).

For the rest of this trip, it looks like I'll need an additional 3 (maybe 4 maps):

--For the drive from the Loire to Burgundy, we don't plan on stopping in between. So I just need a map to get us there. So I'll need the regional (orange) 519.

--For Burgundy (really, just the Cote D'Or), we'll be doing a lot of exploring by car. I'm not sure the regional 519 will give enough detail? In that case, we'd maybe want the local map 320, too? Or no? Kerouac, FMT... what has been useful to you in your drives through this area?

--For the drive from Burgundy to Chamonix, we probably won't stop in between but we will at some point venture over to Annecy one day. For this I'll probably get the regional map (orange) # 523.

--Finally, I am *really* on the fence about also getting the Regional 514 map which includes Paris and its nearby area. We'll be picking up the car in Paris (but not returning there). The part of me that doesn't want to schlepp a 5th or 6th map thinks, once we leave Paris, we get on the A10 and are capable of following signs well enough until we are on roads covered by the 518 map (which we own). The well-prepared mom part of my brain thinks, we should have it "just in case" we need it.

So in summary, that means I'm bringing with me 5 (maybe 6 maps). Seems like a lot to carry, and I just want to be sure there's not a better alternative that I'm not seeing. I know from experience you can't always quickly find the exact map you need when on the roads.

Ideas? Help?
Thanks!
