Well worth the purchase!,
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Rome (Paperback)
I don't normally leave reviews on products, but I feel compelled to do so with this fantastic guide book.
Me and my partner went to Rome last year for six nights, and we took this guide book with us. Apart from visiting the known tourist hotspots such as the Colosseum, we were able to visit many gardens, fountains and large churches built around the renaissance period that we would not have otherwise known about. The book is detailed, describing the important aspects of the attraction and things to look out for. There are many pictures in the book which is always a positive, and with regards to the Roman Forums, which are ruins, the pictures show what the building would have looked like originally. Also, there is a handy map of the city and a tube map at the back of the book. There are also useful phrases which came in handy when ordering food, or asking for the bill.
All in all, an excellent book which nobody should go to Rome without!
