Road Maps of Italy

Road maps of Italy: Driving maps Italy

There are a wealth of road maps of Italy available, but this one is my very favourite and has travelled with me in my rucksac, handbag and car for the last ten years and never let me down.

From my very first solo trip to Italy exploring Florence, Pisa, Massa e Carrara, San Gimignano, Volterra, and driving around the Tuscany villages and towns from the wonderful base of the town of Lucca. And then, later, Siena, Monteriggioni, Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano, and Pienza... And now my home - la Maremma in Tuscany and Lazio - I have travelled with this map.

It is one of the series of Touring Club Italiano maps that cover the whole of Italy, region by region. And is now very well worn: cellotaped along every fold as a result of daily use, but I won't part with it for a new one! (Not yet anyway.)

Advantages:

  • I always like to have my map with me - for a browse over coffee in an Italian piazza or next to me during lunch planning a different return route, or following-up on a place that someone has mentioned - and this one is lightweight and highly portable and has gone everywhere!

  • I prefer see the whole of my journey laid out before me and the Touring Club Italiano maps are spreadable and allow me to do just that easily, rather than to have to tag and turn pages.

  • I love the great detail of the minor roads - the Touring Club Italiano scale is 1:200 000 - which have never let me down.

 

Another Great Road Map of Italy

If however, you are looking for the whole of Italy in one map with detailed street maps of each of the main cities, then this spiral-bound Michelin Italy Tourist and Motoring Map with cities may be just the thing. Its cartography scale is 1: 300,000 and includes seventy-four town maps.

 

Although not as convenient to carry around with you whilst exploring on foot, it would be perfect for keeping in the car or planning your next days trip in your apartment or hotel etc after dinner.
