What do you use to locate places on your itinerary? Paper map? Mobile app?

Jump to last reply

We'll be on holiday in Venice and Rome in a few weeks. (Our first trip there.)

We've created our itineraries (on paper) with addresses, entry fee information, etc. but once we get there is the old tried-and-true method of map in hand the best, or would using Google Maps be better (mark item on map then ask for walking directions - although I realise that this would mean International data charges on my phone), or ???

Would be really interested to hear how everyone executes their itinerary.

Thanks!
