Town Maps

Can anyone tell me of a website where I can download town maps in France? Last year we were given very bad text directions to our hotels and took ages to find them. If we had a town map it would have been a lot easier.

Buzzy,
Don't know about a website, but the Lonely Planet books have great town maps. You could always photocopy those pages and leave the book at home if you don't want to carry it.

In my opinion, www.mappy.com is the current leader in giving you a zoomable, printable map of almost any town you want with excellent clean appearance and yet remarkable detail.

Best wishes,

Rex

Why don't you just drop a letter to the tourist offices of the towns you're interested in and ask them for one. You can also get hotels, restaurant information. Write to:
Office de Tourisme
Name of Town
France
E-mail me for more information- [email protected]

Here's a website:

http://www.multimap.com/index/

1. Choose France
2. Then, choose regional France
3. Then, you can access the various city maps.

This appears to be a good one, folks, and has many countries in its listing.
How accurate? Can't say for sure. I'll let others access their own city map and post reviews.

Multimap has a great range of regional maps, including such rarities as the provinces of Bangladesh, but I found no French town maps nor street maps, so they may be no use for reaching hotels.
