As most of the DK Eyewitness Guide I have bought, a superb mixture between valuable facts and informative illustrations. Naturally the book concentrates on the well-known sights in both Classic and Baroque Rome, but ventures also to the lesser-known worth-whiles. The section on worth to know is fairly comprehensive and provides much useful information.
The size and weight of the book maybe makes it less useful while walking the cobbled streets of Rome, but this is a minor issue. I have solved it by using the foldable map and add small post-it arrows with information - this is easy to carry around.
As background material and inspiration for travel planning this book is a valuable and thorough companion.
