Here, you’ll find “Collections” under the “Favorites” section simply click on “New Collection.”

You will now see the Collection page, however, it’s empty. The quickest way to add places to your Collection is from this screen only. Simply click on “Add a Place” to get started.
Now, you can search for a place by name and click on the plus sign (+) to add it to your collection. You can search and add multiple places here. When you’re finished, simply click on “Done.”
You can add places to your Collection from Apple Maps’ normal search feature too. To do so, simply click on the location you want to add, swipe up to expand the menu, and then tap “Add to.”
In the pop-up menu that appears, click on the Collection to which you want to add the place.
