Three weeks ago I was in Paris. I have spotted some interesting signs, maps and fingerpoints of Paris. These urban signs help you to find the right way if you get lost.
You can see all photos in the Flickr set.
I have posted here the most interesting of them.
I saw these simple district maps on some central squares. On the top of the sign you can normally see the street name and number of the district. On the bottom of the sign there is a simple map of the closest area.
The Parisian metropolitan wayfinding systems are good, but the few times I have seen an excessive number of signs at the stations. Especially are where stations integrating with RER-stations you can meet different new and old signs styles on the one wall.
All signs of the central stations where lot of tourists are clear and excellent.
Important service destinations labeled in three languages (French, English, Spanish), less important labels or stations names are only in French.
The good idea to mark stations not only their names and closest attractions and beauty sights too. This is yellow RER-line map where tourists can find sights and famous places by their names or icons.
