Need original Italian tansit maps

Where can I order or obtain paper (not PDF) mass transit maps for Milan and Venice?

I was recently in Milan and Venice on my honeymoon and one of the last days I thought it would be cool to frame mass transit maps from both. In Venice, despite maps being sold everywhere, I could not find a large one of the Vaporetto system. The one sold at Varporetto stations is tiny! I had similar luck trying to get a Milanese one at the main FS.

Anyone know where/who I could contact to obtain these through mail? I'd like originals and not just printed PDFs.

For instance I emailed the MTA and then sent me one free of charge. However, I can find a similar resource for ATM or Venice.


Here is an example of the Venice one

Here is an example of the Milan one.

Do you have something against printing the PDFs?

Both of those PDFs you linked to are very high resolution (vector). Burn the PDFs to a CD; find a local print shop and ask them to print the two PDFs on the CD.

Response by poster: I just wanted the character of the fold marks, etc.

as far as I can gather, the maps in distribution to the public are smallish pocket editions. I think your best bet to find actual posters -if they exist- would be to write to the ATM for Milan and ACTV for Venice.
