Lovely Old Maps of Paris To Download

Paris as a city is associated with romance and love. As it’s nearing Valentine’s day I thought I would put together a collection of old maps of Paris.

Paris is one of my favourite European cities and I think it’s amazing how it only takes just over 2 hours to get to the heart of Paris from the heart of London by train. I fancy one day travelling to Paris by train for lunch, just for the fun of it. I should imagine that a day trip to Paris is a popular thing to do on Valentine’s day!

These beautiful maps can be used in so many ways. They would look fabulous decoupaged onto furniture like with these personalised map chairs. If you would prefer your maps hung on the wall, there are some fabulous ideas for DIY frames here.

1. Le Plan De Mérain 1615

This is a gorgeous “vu d’oiseau” (birds eye view) of Paris from 1615. I love that the buildings are 3d and you can identify them easily on the map. The colours are gorgeous too. However, because it’s so old some of the major Parisian landmarks are missing like the Eiffel Tower as it was yet to be built.

There is another lovely birds eye view of Paris in the vintage hot air balloon art collection.

2. Old Map of Paris During The Revolution 1790-1795

Even though this is a map of Paris during the French Revolution (1790-1795) it doesn’t look like it. That is because the map was actually printed in 1912 which explains why some of the fonts don’t match the era.

3. Fortifications Map of Paris 1841

A vintage map of the fortifications of Paris, showing the barracks of the troops. Printed in 1841.

4. 1850 Old Map of Paris Showing Landmarks

This vintage map of Paris not only shows all the streets but the border of the map is illustrated with all the major Paris landmarks. These illustrations include building such as the Hotel De Ville, the Arc De Triomphe, Pont Neuf, and the Louvre.

5. Colourful Map of Paris Showing the 20 Districts 1878

This is a lovely antique map of Paris. Each of the 20 districts is highlighted in a different colour. The map would look fabulous hung on any wall as a decoration.

9. Map of The Palace of Versailles and Parks

This is another pocket tourist map of Paris from 1926. The map focuses on the Palace of Versailles and the surrounding area.
