BBC travel recently ran a video on this topic: navigating a city without a smart phone or map.

To be honest, I bought my last compass to navigate cities in Europe [:I]. I found once I could orient myself to the main river that most old cities are built around, everything else fell into place. Especially useful when leaving subway stations.
