StreetSmart® Paris. Paris is unique in many ways. It was Emperor Napoleon III who in 1853 commissioned Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann to reinvent the city with new infrastructure and Grand Boulevards cutting through blighted medieval neighborhoods to create the new City of Light. This map shows the plan with Métro stops by line right on the street map. So you can easily understand the local detail in context and see the entire system in an overview map for God's perspective.

Paris is the city of the Flaneur, the ambivalent drifter who wanders the city's Grand Boulevards looking for chance encounters of the literary and erotic kind. Park benches are said to be spaced in 500 m intervals to encourage Flâneurie. Walter Benjamin, the culture critic, elevated this gastronomy of the eye into the academy channeling the poetry of Baudelaire. The Situationist movement of the 1950s added the idea of psycho-geography an exploration of the city through drifting described as a toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities to create new realities through maps.

StreetSmart® Paris Every Sunday from 9 am until 1:30 pm, the air on Boulevard Raspail, between the Rue Cherche-Midi and Rue de Rennes, fills with the tantalizing smell of sautéing onions. It s the onion galettes shredded onion, potato and cheese (2.50 euros) frying at one of the dozens of stands at the Marché Biologique Raspail. This organic market has been a neighborhood jewel for 26 years.

A new wave of affordable comfort food dining options with three course meals for 20 Euros in 30 minutes is taking Paris by storm. It is a revival of the Bouillon working-class restaurants that thrived during the 19th C they and an affirmation of Gallic identity.

"By Cassandra April 21, 2017"

- Looking for a durable, practical street map of Paris? This one is great. It offers a slightly different perspective from others and proved invaluable for details others lacked. Each of our four travelers carried a different map to offer our group a selection of information, and this one was a heavy hitter. It earned a permanent place in the suitcase.  ★★★★★  (out of 5 stars)
