Rome is one of the most spectacular and alluring cities in the world - a destination which is easy to know a little, yet hard to know well. Elizabeth Speller's new guide to Rome contains surprises and delights for the first-time visitor as well as for the seasoned traveller. Arranged around ten walks through the city, this guide explores beyond the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum, and the great dome of St Peter's. It leads you down narrow cobbled streets, exploring neighbourhood markets, traditional Jewish restaurants, and the treasures of fading Palazzos. It tells you where to row a boat, visit waxworks, sample the best coffee or buy a handbag and will lead you to the most beautiful views, the most spectacular mosaics. Use this guide to find the living city and uncover the layers of its glorious past.
