The geographical area of the Paris environmental zone
Description of the zone's limits
The whole French capital includes the environmental zone of Paris. The city area of Paris is defined without suburbs and includes the area inside the street ring “Boulevard périphérique”. By the way, this street ring surrounding Paris is not an official motorway and is described as E15 in the Eastern part of Paris.
Bois de Boulogne in the Western part of Paris and Bois de Vincennes in the South east part of Paris belong both to the city area but are not included in the environmental zone's area.
