What am I missing here....are these Rome maps really this price? $50-100

Jump to last reply

Here's a post from a January thread regarding what map to use for Rome - indicating the cost of $7.50.

"The absolute best paper map is the Rough Guide Map of Rome. It's a plastic waterproof map pinpointing sights, shops, restaurants & bars, bus lines with all stops, rail and Metro lines and even Taxi kiosks. It's available at most book stores for about $7.50."

So I went to look these maps up and found a price over $50...over $100 on the link from the Barnes and Noble site. However the Rough Guide site lists them at $8.99. What am I missing here? Are they different? Do the expensive maps come alive and walk you to your destination. Has my computer gone crazy?

Here's a link to Amazon site where they're selling the older version for $53. The newer one is $60! http://www.amazon.com/Rough-Guide-Rome-City-Maps/dp/1843531860
