Best Maps for Central Italy

Jump to last reply

We are visiting Italy in late September and I thought the essential maps for our trip would make good stocking stuffers.

We'll be doing some driving in the Val d'Orcia starting from Montepulciano & heading west to Abbey of Sant'Antimo, with stops in between. La Foce & Assisi are also possibilities. (We haven't decided if we will do an overnight in Umbria in closer proximity to Assisi/Spello yet) A drive to the Western edge of Unbria for stops in Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio & Lake Bolsena (from either Montepulciano or somewhere in Umbria) are on our radar as well.

Before we arrive in this region we will be in Rome, we'll need a good walking/metro map here too.

I have read about the Italian Touring Club Toscana Map, and the Michelin guide, Streetwise City Map came recommended for Rome. Are these the best materials for us? Something ekse? What about a map for Umbria?

I'm also interested in useful apps for iPhone/iPad, I vaguely remember reading about downloadable GPS applications specific to region.

Thank you!
