I am going on a trip to Rome this year, and my main reason is to see the amazing hystorical remains. I bought this book because it had been recommended in the BBC History magazine, and I was not disappointed. I found it easy to read and understand (I have no formal history education) and very informative. It starts with a history of Rome, and then explains architectural styles. It gives information on opening times etc of the historical sites - which I found useful in planning my itinery.
I am so looking forward to my trip and this book will have enhanced my experience!

Here are all the answers to the questions you had while walking round in Rome looking at the remains and monuments. I knew a bit about it already, but this book is a goldmine of information, and it has really taught me a lot. It'll be the first item into my suitcase for my next visit, that's for sure. Highly recommended, both for the novice and the more advanced student. A truly impressive work.

The book came really quickly and was especially pleased with the quality of the book and the information it gave for the city and archaeology. It had a few more pencil marks than I was expecting, but this didn't impede the reading of it in any way. I would buy from this seller again as it was good value for money, speedy service and a good book!
