A bit bouncy to fold
on 28 September 2016
Laminated maps are very practical and durable, but there are also other factors to consider. Where my daughter's Insight Fleximap at 68x44cm scored massively against the 100x68cm Marco Polo was ease of use, particularly when it came to folding and unfolding. Also Marco Polo's lacks the map of the Czech Republic and more detailed map of Hradcany (the Castle area) which feature on the Insight.
Both contain a Metro map and a street index, but the fact that the Insight features Ten Sights You Shouldn't Miss, plus some essential information for tourists, means that on a brief visit you could actually go out only with this and still catch the most worthwhile sights.
The Marco Polo does extend further, but it is doubtful how much relevance those outer suburbs have for the average tourist. We found ourselves referring to the more compact and less bouncy map every time.
