Plan your next trip with ease with Tripomatic, the free app that lets you find exciting attractions and sights with an all-encompassing map.
The app is ideal for travelers who lack the plan-ahead gene. Open the app on your iPhone or iPad once you arrive at your destination and view a map of the closest attractions to your current location. See something interesting but running out of time? Save it for later with the app’s storage ability. You can also sync your custom itinerary on all your devices for easy accessibility.
Tripomatic displays self-guided walking tours, shows the quickest way to get back to your hotel (subway or taxi?) and clues you into the weather forecast for the following few days.
More than 100,000 attractions in more than 150 locations are included in the app, making it impossible to miss the best sights and adventures in your destination of choice.
Bonus? You can access the app offline, which will save on roaming data fees. If you need a map to reach your attraction of interest, you won’t have to worry about losing your connection once you leave a WIFI zone.
For the travelers who do plan, Tripomatic’s accompanying website allows you to print a PDF guide so you won’t have to worry about your device’s battery strength.
When a break from reality is in order, sometimes it’s best to not only escape your surroundings but also to escape your social network, including coworkers, friends, family members and even significant others. In the highly underrated world of solo travel, here are a few domestic destinations to consider for a brief solo sojourn for some ever-elusive moments of solitude.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
