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 the 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, motorways and major highways, and all significant urban areas. Unlike the Thomas Cook map, this map is a political map showing each country in a different 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 emphasis 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!
We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
To laminate this map we have taken the folded map and flattened it out before encapsulating it in high-quality 80-micron laminate, so please be aware that there will still be slight fold lines visible.
