one more paris map question
I have and love the Streetwise map but it doesn't cover the outer arridismonts well at all. Does anyone have a recommendation for a map as detailed as Streetwise for the 15th, 16th and 17th?

knopf map guides. It is a small pocket sized book that has some stores, bars, restaurants in each area and the map flips out for each area (if that makes sense)

Barnes and Noble sells them online and in the store. I like the knopf maps better than streetwise, it is more comprehensive, smaller and easier to look at, and not coated to you can easily write on it.

I just ordered from Amazon the Paris Mapguide by Michael Middleditch, third edition. It has all the arrondissements, plus Metro, points of interst, churches, park and seems to cover all you need.

I LOVE the Mapguide series of maps (not the Knopf series, but the ones by Middleditch with the grey covers) -- I only wish there were more.

I have a very well worn Paris Mapguide. What I really like about it is that it is both thorough and portable -- and because it's in booklet format, you don't have this ginormous big map to carry around and fold, refold etc

Of all the maps of Paris I've ever had, the Paris Mapguide is my favorite and the one I always have along.
