map of Rome

I need a good map of Rome. Which is the best? How far is it from the Colosseum to the Baths of Caracalla?
I'd like to walk if it's not too far.

You can check walking distances on by clicking on pedestrian routes.

Streetwise Maps are popular, but I also like the Red Maps.

I checked out all the maps at Borders and Barnes & Noble today and decided on the Streetwise one, though I alaready have good maps of Rome. I like the fact it's laminated; it's a decent scale; and it's not one of those pop-up things that seems like it would be a nightmare refolding every time you finished looking at it.

Here is another vote for the Streetwise maps. We have used them in several European cities incl. Rome and really like them a lot.

Thank you everyone for you map information. I'll go to Barnes and Noble and get the streetwise map. I'll also use the mappy site.

Hi Mckim,

I have used the Streetwise maps for Rome and Venice. I found them excellent, detailed and easy to read. I liked the fact that they list all the sites and churches and give coordinates for them too. The lamination is a big plus, really makes it last under heavy use!

Buon viaggio!

roughguide map is excellent, as is touring club italiano

you can most definitely walk from colosseum to Baths of Caracalla - you will pass through interesting landscape on caelian hill and past or near several ancient churches - can continue on to appian way if you feel vigourous!
