Many of the templates will have maps built in; however, if the theme you choose does not, it's easy to add one. With the page selected, all you want to do is come on over to Layout. One of the choices besides the different photos will be the ability to choose a map. Once you have selected the map, you'll see that there are different options. You can insert the map into a layout with lots of photos or choose one where the map is quite large and there is a strip of photos next to it.
Really, it's up to you to decide which one works best, and you will find a wide variety from maps in the center with a wealth of photos around them to full screen maps that lets you tell your story. Which one you choose, is purely up to you.
