Online interactive maps of Italy's regions are available from websites such as Maps of the World, About.com and Understanding Italy. Printed paper maps can be bought from Longitude Maps or downloaded and printed.
Many of the interactive online maps give histories of the regions of Italy as well as useful tourist information about provincial cities, railway routes and distance calculators. Famous for its food and wine, Italy can be explored in person or for school projects using thematic maps showing types of foods, methods of cooking and wine regions. Other maps show restaurants and hotels, climate and places of interest such as museums and art galleries.
