Europe Railways & Roads Travel Reference Map 1:3,350,000
Most visitors to Europe travel either by tour or by using a rail pass. Although car rental travel is also popular, most maps of Europe do show rail lines. Showing all passenger rail lines from western Ireland to east of Moscow and from Scandinavia to southern Italy is challenging. We feel that this map does a good job of showing high speed rail lines separately from regular lines, motorwats and major highways, and all significant urban areas. Unlike the Thomas Cook map, this map is a political map showing each country in a diferent colour, and grades cities by different dots (London and Paris being orange-ish blobs). The market for this map, frankly, is the visitor to Europe, although residents of Europe should find it helpful as well. By adding roads as well as rail lines (while placing the emphacis on rail travel), those parts of Europe not having rail connections can still be explored (think of SArdinia, Corsica, Malta etc.) Ferry routes are also shown and the E classification highways are noted. Sorry, we didn't have room to show river cruises, but the rivers are included!
