I just returned from Paris and replaced my old copy which didn't have newer attractions such as Musee Branly and Velib stations. My new copy is a gorgeous red, and includes translations in English, Spanish, Italian, and Russian of key sections: the summary contents page and the famous monuments descriptions. If you buy it in Paris, you can look at the various versions, which have slight differences such as which languages and supplementary material are included, and also choose the color you want.
The book includes a general plan of the city with subways and bus lines shown on separate maps, an alphabetical index and grid reference for every street in the city. Following the index are 20 maps, one for each arrondissement. Warning: The print on these maps is small and can be hard to read except when the light is strong. That's why I gave this otherwise excellent book 4 instead of 5 stars.There is also an excellent section of maps and indexes for the city's major suburbs.
The last section of the book includes complete listings with addresses and phone numbers of police stations, fire houses, government offices, embassies, post offices, hospitals,churches, monuments, museums, even parking lots.
This is good value for the money. Your $25 investment will last a long time. If you love Paris, or just have to do business there, you'll love this book.
This simply is the BEST MAP you can have on hand while in Paris. It is the most DETAILED map you can have of Paris, bundled in a very TRAVEL FRIENDLY size (note, there are different sized versions...some the size of an iphone 4S...but thinner...and others the size of a Reader's Digest). Another reviewer correctly states that the print can be small but I also have to say the guide is very INTUITIVE and where most maps leave out the smaller streets, this map will tell you exactly where you are. The guide is intuitive because it has a street index and the maps are also arranged by arrondisement (district).
This little book is NOT a travel guide though. It has no recommendations for restaurants, hotels and things to do.
I am a very satisfied Amazon Prime User but will admit you can find this book in any Parisian street/subway magazine vendor's stall for less than 10 euro (about 8 bucks) versus the thirty five or so dollars you have to pay in the US. The booklets are usually in blue and say "Plan De Paris" in big letters and "Par Arrondisement" in smaller letters. That said at about eight bucks, this is also the BEST VALUE of all the maps you could hope to find.

Excellent because it's small, but powerful, and contains a map of each of the arrondissements. Much more street-friendly than the traditional map that is blocked by some arbitrary... Read morePublished on July 6, 2014 by Steve H. in Austin
