Kilometre Zero, Paris

In the square in front of Notre Dame (Paris) there is a plaque (said to have been put in place by André Michelin, founder of the Michelin tyre business) marking the point from which all distances in France are measured.
On our recent trip, I set out to locate this plaque (having not previously noticed it).   It took me a few minutes, even though it was quite early in the morning, before many people were around.   But, yes, it's there, even though it's not very conspicuous and can be easily overlooked.
