The clear, clean and uncluttered style of Michelin maps is compounded with extreme attention to detail covering scenic roads, footpaths, panoramic views, emergency telephones, road widths and more. It's this kind of detail that can, for example, help North American tourists avoid surprises while traveling down narrow roads that are often hundreds of years old. Buildings, monuments, park trails and government offices are highlighted, too. When it comes to ease of use, Michelin has really done its homework. Michelin maps and the patented Michelin fold make it a snap to refold, even with one hand on the wheel. All Michelin atlases are available in spiral format, too. That's the number one binding preference according to independent consumer research. Michelin's unique cross-referencing system also makes mapping out travelers trips a cinch. Maps and guides throughout the Michelin collection work together with universal symbols directing to more information.

Rouen photo book, Normandy France (99 photos) : Europe series 15

By Akira Okubo

Released: 2016-06-03
Kindle Edition (99 pages)

Rouen photo book, Normandy France (99 photos) : Europe series 15
 
Product Description:
Rouen is the capital of the region of Normandy with the population of about 110,000, and it takes 1 hour and 10 minutes from Saint-Lazare station in Paris by train.
It has been developed with water transportation of the Seine since Roman times.
Rouen is known as the place where Jeanne d'Arc was burned at the stake, and there are the church, the tower and the street which are associated with Jeanne d'Arc. Notre Dame cathedral is known worldwide as the subject of a series of paintings by Claude Monet-one of the greatest master impressionists.
There are many traditional Normandy-style half-timbered houses and Gothic churches in the old town.
In this photo book, I have selected 99 photos which I took mainly in the old town to introduce Rouen as “a place to visit at least once”.
