5.0 out of 5 stars A Clear, Concise and Insight View of the City, 21 April 2012
This review is from: Lonely Planet Rome (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Every couple of years, Lonely Planet take a look at themselves and what they are producing and enhance their products to makes sure they offer the best they can do for their readers. Their latest review is a great example of its current evolution.

The Lonely Planet City Guide for Rome is well laid out starting with what you need to know, then moving through the highpoints of the city with hints and tips for all age groups and tastes. There are also clear maps with details of public transport and walking routes. Also with being Rome, there is a great focus on food and social events.

What makes this different from a lot of guide books is firstly its size, it packs a lot into a book that is a little over pocket size making it a great planning book before you go as well as a reference guide whilst you are there. Secondly it is written by people who know the city so the recommendations for food and shelter often carry a personal note which adds a degree of colour to the description. Thirdly it is also great value for money with clear maps and photos making it a bargin as well as a joy to read.

This book has brought a guide for Rome right up to date, from free wifi spots to ways to get the best out of the historical parts of the city and is ideal if you are travelling on your own, in a couple or part of a family or group of friends
