Neighborhood Locator Maps
Those maps that have been drawn have links; click on the locator map you wish to view that is underlined. When you are through, hit your 'back' button to return to this maps page, or choose Back to Homepage to return to the main page. I have hand-drawn these maps and they do not take the place of a complete map of Rome. Not every street is shown, because it would have to be so big, you'd never be able to see the names of the smaller streets. The maps are intended to show the general location of churches, palazzos, museums and galleries, and other points of interest as related to each other and the larger streets within each neighborhood. I do apologize for any delay in downloading any of the maps on this page. Each should download in one to three minutes. Hopefully, you won't be disappointed. When I have more time, I will try and reduce the size of the larger maps so as to cut down on the download time. Since I have to draw each, it is very time-consuming and I hope you will be patient. I will add maps as I can find the time to draw them.
NOTE: The maps contained herein are not to scale nor are all smaller streets included and is intended solely for the purpose of site orientation in relation to each other. It is not intended as a replacement to an official map; therefore, it is highly recommended that you obtain a current edition of a travel guide or map of Rome prior to your trip. The maps are first shown small to get the broad perspective, then shown large to get the detail and the key to the map is below that. Pictures are available on those sites that are underlined and will be added to periodically, so please check back.
Rome's Metro Subway System This shows in schematic form Rome's Lines A and B with a narrative underneath of the stations that have interesting sites near them. (Metro map is courtesy of Andrea Pollett, Roma.)
St. Peter's Basilica Floor Plan Shows a schematic of St Peter's Basilica floor plan and where different items are located.
Vatican Area Locator Map (75K) This map shows the area and sights around the Vatican as well as how to get from St. Peter's Square to the Vatican Museums (a little jaunt), as well as where the closest subway station is to the Vatican.
Vatican Museums Floor Plan (247K). This map shows the floor plan of both floors of the vast Vatican Museums. However, I need to point out that you should purchase a guide to the Vatican Museums when you enter the admissions gate so that you will not miss anything you may want to see. Be prepared as these museums are enormous, some sections cluttered, and all breathtaking.
15th Century Fragment of Ancient Rome (117K) Thanks to my friend Andrea Pollett of Rome, this is a fragment of a 15th century map of ancient Rome by Pirro Ligorio (dated 1553), an important architect of that time. He drew the plan according to actual remains and to other sources. Therefore, most of the monuments shown were already missing by the time he made the plan.

Da Vinci Airport Map This map shows the Da Vinci Airport and environs.
