Getting around - Guides to Amsterdam, Paris and London

For those of you traveling here and around Europe, I've put some links here so that I don't lose them next time my computer crashes. You might want bookmark these, too - it can prevent some stress to get an idea of the geography of a city before you go. If you've got a guidebook, you can refer to these maps and figure out how close or far everything is, and how to get from one place to another. This is especially helpful for when you're traveling to someplace where everything is in a different language. (For newcomers, this is where you click "Continue reading", below, to get to the actual links.)
This is the Amsterdam site, in English.

The London Transport Homepage. This is for everything, including timetables for the tube, buses and rail.

The Real Underground has some very cool information. It shows a somewhat more realistic geographic representation of the London Underground. You can also click and superimpose the city streets onto the tube map, which is pretty cool.

Here are the London Tube Maps.

The Paris Metro (subway) System.

And finally, the mother lode of transit systems everywhere - the Metro Planet Subway travel information site. You have to look around a bit to figure out what to click on to get where you want to go, but once you figure it out, it is an excellent reference.
