Customer Reviews

"Bought this for my honeymoon in Rome and it was very handy since we had our phone data off most of the time when we were wandering around. I loved that it was laminated so it didn't get wet during unexpected storms or when it was in my husband's Camelbak that leaked, and it folded up and fit perfectly in my small cross body bag. Also bought the map for Venice and it was just as helpful"
