   Made my trip to Rome much easier!
Was incredibly useful, could even fold it in the rain, was able to use it in different ways depending on what part of the city I was in. Really liked the information that came in the large pamphlet and the map itself has a small font, image for the biggest tourist spots and is very legible, would definitely recommend!

   Good for Historical Center
This is a great map for the historical center of Rome, but I want to go to Testaccio and this map just gets there. Streets aren 't named and the stop of Piramide Metro isn 't on the map. I wanted to see more of Rome. I am using Walking Rome and this map was said to go with it, but it doesn 't quite do that.

   Use Google Maps offline, it has the same content.
The map is inaccurate, but everything is ok. It also cuts a large chunk of space, so that I did not get the full map when I got there. Didn 't really use the map when I realized how useless it is. I ended up using Google Maps and used the offline map content available. Because we had no service, Google Maps was able to use off-line capabilities. It took us everywhere, and safely at that.

   easy to read and very durable
Even with Google maps and a data plan, I found this old map very helpful, especially when planning. The material is pliable and durable, making it easy to fold to focus on a specific area, yet still no problem in refolding the standard way. This type of map will buy for other trips this type of map.

   Great map, a little small with the names
A popular feature of the map is that it enlarges some of the more beautiful tourist destinations. The type is small, but really it has to be able to get all the info onto a map that is small enough to carry. Overall, a decent size.

   Don't Think You Can Rely on the Internet. Buy a Real Map!
This was for my kid, who was going to Rome for a semester abroad. It turned out to be very useful, especially with high foreign data costs and the limitations of teeny tiny cell phone screens in the bright summer sun. She beat the hell out of it, but held together and was extremely useful for navigating by foot and bicycle. Not only did it lead her to all the major landmarks, but it also helped her discover many less common sights, and perhaps more importantly, it helped her navigate home.

   Excellent Map
I'm a little bit of an over-planner. I write agendas for each day, choose areas of a city to visit and literally determine what roads we will walk to achieve our set plan for the day. I love this about myself ''. I am the owner and I work with it. For a trip to Rome last year, I bought no less than five separate maps. This was the best map of them all. It has all the main sites and roads, it is easy to write and very importantly, easy to read. I liked it so much, that I rearranged the same map to plan for our upcoming trip in November!

   Excellent tool for travel!
We bought this to help us plan our summer trip to Rome. I thought it would be stiff because it would be laminated, but instead they achieved waterproof by printing on a synthetic paper that is super flexible. It helped us organize our intended destinations by geography into groups so that we wouldn 't spend our time and money on the same day traveling to multiple parts of the city ( like not putting the Colosseum and the Vatican on the same day ).
