Chow Hounds going to France may be interested to know that the French yellow pages have an excellent service, providing views of every street (left, right, up, down) taken at about 25 yard intervals. The cities covered are:
Bordeaux, Lille, Lyons, Marseilles, Nantes, Paris, Rennes, Strasbourg and Toulouse.
You can take a virtual drive up or down a street and see if you like the look of a particular restaurant etc.
The home page is in French (of course) but click on the Union Flag at the top right for an English version.
