Italian Google Maps Mashups Round-Up


Myopencity is a new italian Yelp/Qype competitor, that allows the user to easily browse Google Maps to find reviews, places, people and events. To discover what is happening in your town just drag and drop the map or search by town, category or tag.

The reviews and events are divided into a large number of categories, including restaurants/bars, cultural, sport and shopping. Each category has an individual map marker. Clicking on a marker opens an information window with information about the location and the option to give it a rating.

Bed & Breakfast in Termini Rome
This Google Maps mashup lets you find a B&B in Termini in Rome. The bed and breakfast establishments are shown on the map and also listed alphabetically in the map sidebar.

The site uses Street View so it is possible to view the exterior of the B&B and to take a virtual stroll around the immediate neighbourhood. Clicking on one of the markers opens an information window with the establishment's address and an e-mail address so that you can book a room.

New Moon Map

Italian newspaper la Repubblica has created this Google Maps mashup covering some of the locations in the movie New Moon. Part of the film is set in the picturesque Italian town of Volterra.

The map markers show some of the film's locations and include photographs and extracts from Stephenie Meyer's original novel.
