Generally, you can find good maps at big bookstores like Barnes & Noble or Borders. It's a matter of personal choice whether you'd prefer an atlas or a folding map. Michelin and Hallweg (wag?) are both good. You'll find an excellent selection of good maps - - and cheaper at gas stations on every autostrada in Italy. AGIP, for example.

Get yourself started by looking at your routes on the maps provided on www.viamichelin.com or www.mappy.com

Best wishes,

Rex

I always get maps at Barnes and Noble before taking trips.

I have had good luck, particularly for city maps, by contacting One Map Place, www.onemapplace.com, in Dallas. I email the boss and tell him in detail what I want and wait for his suggestions. So far I have not been disappointed. The store carries a complete line of European roadmaps.
I have built a small collection of maps for Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and other places.

I ordered the 3 volume Touring Club Italia road atlas (Stradale Atlante)from Internetbookshop.it. It comes with a cd rom - you can key in your begin and end towns and it maps out the route. I love it. You need to read Italian to order it online from the website. Postage wasn't cheap to the US, but it arrived quickly (fedex) and all in all with the price plus postage I think it was a good buy. Good luck!

louise,
Bob's suggestion of One Map Place sounds great.
Here's another on the East Coast:
Franklin Maps in King of Prussia, Pa. has a very, very large inventory of foreign driving maps, road atlases, including all in the Michelin European series (plus a huge selection of travel books), many more than my local B&N and Borders. I just bought a Michelin 235 France Midi-Pyrenees map there that I couldn't find in my bookstores. Just give Judy Henderson and staff your destination and they'll find the right maps for you. And they ship all over the country.

Till you get a map, Louise, you may have detailed directions by using the Michelin site:
http://www.viamichelin.com/viamichelin/gbr/dyn/controller/HomePage

If you use the Driving Directions function and plug in, say, Como and Cavasso, you'd get all the info you need:

The summarized driving directions show that one has to drive through Mestre, Treviso and Conegliano. The detailed driving directions show that one has to take S13, from Conegliano to Sacille, and then find one's way through Fiaschetti, Malnisio and Montereale into S251 past Maniago, into S464 and Cavasso. The printablem iterative map (relative to destination city) shows with details the last portion of the trip.
