All you need to know Rome - without being Roman,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Companion Guide to Rome (Companion Guides) (Paperback)
This book was my guide when I first lived in Rome and no amount of specialised information on individual topics since has surpassed its breadth, depth and feel for the city. Arranged in logical, area-based chapters rather than chronological or by particular sites, it really is a warm, essential and highly sophisticated guide to an extremely complex city.
Cannot recommend it too highly, and nor could the Signora who first recommended it to me.
