It's always a good idea
to carry printed maps of the locations you will
be visiting. Printed tourist maps are easy
to read and will serve as a backup should
something happen to your Smartphone where you
have saved map links. Do some research to
find tourist maps listing the attractions for
the locations you are visiting. On the
maps, circle your arrival/departure points such
as the train or bus stations as well as your
hotel location if applicable. Circle the
tourist attractions you plan to visit and
highlight important routes you will take such as
from your arrival point to your hotel.
Write your hotel address, reservation number and
other important information on the back of the
map.t information on the back of the
Website for maps
You can simply Google
something like 'Prague Tourist Map' to find maps
similar to the one below but a couple of our
favorite map sites are Mappery and On
The World Map.

You may not think much
about it, but you should make special note of
where you will be arriving in a city and how you
will get to your hotel. In larger cities
such as Rome, you may be arriving at a specific
point such as the Rome Termini Train Station
where you will need to take the Metro (Subway)
to a specific stop where you will exit and then
walk to your hotel. Have a plan and
know your route!

It can be helpful
to zoom in and print a more detailed map
page showing for example your hotel
location with street names. If
required, print a map or several pages
showing your arrival location and hotel
highlighting your route noting the
streets you will take and intersections
you will cross.
When you have completed your activities
for each location, discard your maps as
you go, or bring them home with you for
scrapbooking your travels or as a
reminder for future trips.
