Personalised Walking Routes on Google Maps
TouristPath is a handy Google Maps based app for finding nearby points of interest, restaurants and hotels and for generating customised walking routes.
If you enter a location into TouristPath the map will centre on the location and add nearby points of interest. The markers displayed on the map can be refined by category (nature, historical, World Heritage sites, places of worship, hotels and restaurants) and by a number of subcategories.
If you click on the 'Days' option TouristPath will also display a suggested walking route taking in many of the most interesting points of interest. So, for example, if you are only interested in visiting museums and cathedrals you can select those options and generate a walk that takes in interesting museums and cathedrals.
