The plan shows all the city’s famous landmarks and other places of interest as well as numerous hotels. The index lists only main streets.
On the reverse is a street plan of La Défence, a map of the city’s outer suburbs including Versailles, and a map of a wider area for day trips, extending out to Chartres, Fontainebleau, Compiègne, Disneyland, etc. Also included is a map showing the numbering system of the arrondisements and diagrams with the metro/RER network and access to the city’s two international airports.
