Priceless reading for my trip to Rome,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When in Rome (Kindle Edition)
I bought this when in Rome on holiday as I was keen to read something about the city that's more than the glossy touristy volumes sold in souvernir shops. The book covers the forgotten, i.e. no longer existing landmarks of the eternal city from ancient times to modern. It really helped to magnify the experience of being in Rome. Not just because of its tails of Nero's forum, Temple Jupiter Maximus, etc but also of the fine detail about the city and many of its existing landmarks. It's not a short book, so there is plenty for another trip !
