Paris Street Maps

I've checked the archives in vain to find a site with detailed street maps for Paris - I know it's in here somewhere! Help!

Anne,
I don't recall a query dealing with websites for Paris maps but there was one regarding Paris maps. As I recall, the general consensus was to invest in the Michelin Paris Plan map 12, if you're looking for something to spread across the dining room table. Michelin Paris Plan map 11 is the same map in soft cover booklet form and ideal to carry with you. Both are to a scale of 1cm:100m. Either offers an excellent detailed map of the city

Anne: On the Paris transport authority's website there is a set of street maps for Paris listed by landmarks. This link will take you to the English directory:

Enjoy your trip.

there's also this
a great service, set up by
France Telecom, which will show you your any street address located within Paris city limits.
1. Go to
http://www.pageszoom.com/wrmm_rue_
marchande.cgi
2. Click on English language (to see instructions and info in English)
3. Type in the address
4. You will see a detailed description of the street, house
by house, and navigation buttons allowing you to "walk"
up or down the street, and even turn the corner.
5. Find the listing of your hotel (or whatever) and click on
the PHOTO icon.
6. Takes a few seconds to load but...there's a recent photo
of your hotel!

I don't know of such a site, maybe the RATP site is the one you're thinking of. It's a very good site to get a very small, local view of an address with the bus lines, etc, listed. Problem is, you have to guess at the name of the neighborhood, I think, and it doesn't show addresses. The France phonebook site URL is www.pagesjaunes.com (think it used to be pageszoom) and I don't think you can enter directly at the spot of the photos as posted (ie, at ...rue_marchande.cgi) -- it's one of those sites you can only get to by clicking on a link on a front page. You have to click on "rues commercantes" I think to get the form to fill out with a specific address, and then you can get a street photo, hopefully. They are very small photos and angles, and don't always give you the greatest idea of what an area looks like in a broad sense, though; but can maybe weed out really bad things you might not know (ie, if your hotel is directly on top of a bar, etc). I wouldn't recommend the Michelin maps of Paris, myself; I think other versions are better for the average traveler (cheaper, too, I think). It's easy to get a pocket-sized cheap version of maps by arrondisement at kiosques, newsstands, bookstores, etc. in Paris. If by any chance you are looking for a hotel map, I think the maps with hotels marked available at www.paris-hotel.com are very nice and good to print out (if you are staying at a hotel they list).

I don't know when you'll be traveling to Paris, but you can contact the French Tourist Office in New York City and get their map. It's pretty detailed. In fact, I have an extra one if you'd like me to mail it to you. Email me directly and give me your address.
