A fresh approach

This book reveals the Rome that most of us are just not aware of as we rush trying to check off all the famous sights covered in most guidebooks. This is a more intimate look at the city. I found it very involving and charming. I have been to Rome twice and loved it but this book makes me want to epxerience it afresh and take my time doing it.

Enjoy

This non-classic approach to understanding rome was a fresh perspective. The author brings ancient buildings to life with insighttful anecdotes of history and civilizations. Having the accompanying maps would have been very helpful. I'm not sure how to obtain them.
