Where can I find map icons for famous Paris landmarks?

I am looking for icons for famous landmarks in Paris, such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre, Notre Dame. These should do. For other poi's I have general category-icons, but it would be nice to have special onces for the most well-known. (also from a ux-standpoint: i.e: 'getting your bearings' it would be great)

Anyone knows where to look?

what size do you want the icons to be? – Mapperz Dec 6 '12 at 15:10
48x48px max, approx correctly aligned to the map perspective (mapbox style) and all icons in the same style for bonus! :) – Geert-Jan Dec 6 '12 at 16:40

Do a Google image search on "free landmark icon". There are tons but whether you'll find all the ones you're after I don't know. Vector Stock seem to do a range but I can't say I've ever used them.

Failing that, download Inkscape and make your own!
