History in High Heel’s Paris Map

Outside of Italy, Paris will always be my favorite city. I love visiting Paris, and I go whenever I can. I was fortunate enough to visit three times last year, and with each trip I fell even more in love with the city. My last trip in November was especially meaningful, as it was just six days after the terrorist attacks. But Parisians are resilient, and we joined them in their refusal to be terrorized.

Since returning home, I have finally been able to put together a (somewhat) comprehensive custom Google map of Paris. I love creating custom Google maps, it is the best way to share information on a particular place. The best part is that you can save the map and reference it while traveling. I am particularly proud of my efforts to map as many gorgeous Parisian doors as I could, and tracking down some amazing (but often kept secret) photo spots.

And here is a great blog post that walks you through creating, accessing, and saving custom google maps.

Feel free to comment with suggestions to add to the map, or things I overlooked.

    I, too, love Paris! Love this interactive map and I have bookmarked it for my first solo trip to Paris next year! A few restaurants I've particularly enjoyed on past trips are Gusto Italia at 199 Rue de Grenelle (not far from the Eiffel Tower); Le Paradis du Fruit (I think there may be a few locations, but we went to the one at 32 Avenue de Wagram, one of the "spokes" radiating out from the Arc de Triomphe); La Creperie at 12 Rue Soufflot and Le Soufflot at 16 Rue Soufflot near the Pantheon; and Le Marche at 2 Place du Marche Sainte-Catherine in the Marais. Also, loved the Musee de Cluny – Medieval Art in an old monastery which was built on top of a Roman Bath – the layers of history are amazing in this place! Can't wait to wander around and find all your doors!!

    Hi ashley! I've been reading all your posts about Paris because I'm going next year with my husband but I have a question! Which are the best areas to stay in Paris in your opinion? I saw a cute loft at 15th arrondissment but I think it could be far from landmarks.

    I personally love staying in the Marais. It has great food, shopping, and nightlife, and it isn’t far from all the major sights. I have also stayed near the Luxembourg Gardens and enjoyed that area as well. The good news is that while Paris is large, the metro is wonderful and you can get anywhere you need to go. So as long as you’re near a metro line, it’s ok stay a little further out. Hope this helps!
