Best Online Printable Big Maps of Central Paris
March 29, 2014 7:30 PM   Subscribe

Where can i find the best free printable maps of Central Paris? Something big I can print out multi-page. (I can find plenty of tiny print maps which aren't for me). I'm thinking it would fit on 25 sheets of 8 x 11. I'd fold it and carry it with me. A good map that shows the relative widths of streets. Labels the main sights, shows tube stations. Google Maps doesn't fill the bill. If you have a really really good memory, I asked this question about London last year :) and I found Hotelmaps.com. Perfect! I had a blast using the large map. Planning my trip, I spread it out on my kitchen table and plotted my motley movements. When I got there, i folded it to the right page to bail myself out when i bumbled my bearings. And afterwards I had a keepsake with angsty autographs of the people I met. So is there a website that has these kind of maps for Paris?

You can use openstreetmap and some tools to get nice printed maps

If you print out your own maps you will deprive yourself of the joy of using the Paris Pratique Par Arrondissement! Although it covers a lot more than just central Paris.

So much time, effort and ink. Wouldn't a pre-printed map work better?

Not a printable map. I'm afraid.
But this is enormous fun.
