Map of Paris France, Paris Street Map
A good detailed map of Paris is essential, whether you’re here to see just the main tourist attractions or want to delve deeper and venture into the lesser known streets and neighbourhoods.
You can find an online Paris street map easily enough, and this can help with your advance planning, understanding the layout of the city, and finding out where the popular sights and museums are.
We would also highly recommend buying a good paper map that you can use while you’re in Paris, as well as a metro map.
Here are some suggestions for some of the best maps on the market, both paper copy and online.
Map of Paris France, Tourist Map Paris
We bought the Streetwise Paris France map a few years ago, and have continued to use it on all of our trips to Paris.
Why do we recommend them? They are cheap, detailed, and laminated, so they are durable, less prone to tearing and won’t be ruined if it gets wet from rain.
Michelin Paris Pocket Atlas (by Arrondissements) Map No. 16 is another highly recommended map for Paris (can be purchased online – click on map image below for more info).
It’s a great tourist map of Paris, small enough to fit into a backpack/day bag, and has superb detail, including metro map.
It’s also spiral bound which we find is much better than trying to navigate a paper foldout map in the middle of a paris metro station!. This map is the one that many of the Paris residents use.
The Paris (DK Eyewitness Pocket Map and Guide is also recommended – compact and lightweight so easy to carry around, and it has good maps of the city and metro map. Find out more about it here:
