Maps of Italy
Travel Planning the Visual Way: Rail, City, and Region Maps

I'm a great fan of maps. Maps are a way to see how geography is structured, how cities are put together and how people move between them.

With a map I can show you places you couldn't search the internet for, because they are unknown to you, so you'd never think to search for them..

We'll start with public transportation maps and then list our Italian places maps.

Big or Far

We'll start with the basics: how big is Italy, and how far apart are the attractions? Our first map shows you how big Italy is compared to the U.S. The second is interactive; it allows you to find the direct destance between any two points on a map of Italy.

Maps of Italian Places


Italy's largest region is the most popular. There's a lot of diversity in Tuscany, from the seaside resorts, luxurious spas, rustic mountain villages, and cities full of Renaissance art. Discover it with our Tuscany Guide. Inside Tuscany is the Val d'Orcia, a very compelling place to spend a week of your Italian vacation.

Also within Tuscany, a is the traditional territory called La Lunigiana. It's rural and seldom visited, but has over 160 castles and castle ruins and food you won't find elsewhere. People make their own food, butcher pigs in winter, and enjoy kilometer zero meals all the time. It's the antidote to modern living with industrial food.

Also lesser known is Pitigliano and its Vie Cave, "roads" carved out of rock, a fascinating city and surroundings. The town is shown in the picture below.

Always slated to be "the next Tuscany", Puglia has its own, different charms. It's all about the southern Baroque, beaches all around, Italy's best vegetables and citrus fruits, Byzantine monasteries and way more. Besides, it's flat. You can walk everywhere. Oh, and the food? Fabulous! See our "Puglia Maps and Travel Guide."

The Gargano Peninsula is a unique land mass, once an island way back when the sea was higher. If you're looking for something to do in Puglia, our Gargano Itinerary features a map and suggested attractions and places to stay.

Cinque Terre Hiking Trails Map

Perhaps the most front of Italy's "back doors," the Cinque Terre can be frightfully overtouristed in the summer, but it's still a prime destination for wanderers. We've made a printable map of not only the main trails, but of some of the more difficult trails near the ridgetop, with spectacular views.

Via Francigena Map

The Via Francigena is part of a medieval pilgrimage route that went between Canterbury and Rome, first recorded by Bishop Sigeric on his first trip to Rome in the year 990.

The cities along the route are some of the best cities to visit in Italy. Each usually got its wealth from the pilgrims and the commerce that came with them. You could do worse than to walk the Via Francigena, but you can also visit the cities along the way by car, of course.
