Overview

Explore Rome, part of a brand-new series for March 2014, is the perfect pocket companion when discovering the “eternal city”: a full-color guide containing 17 easy-to-follow routes that take in the city center’s monuments –  including a detailed itinerary around the Colosseum – as well as people-watching opportunities on the Spanish Steps, art treasures at the Vatican, trendy bars in Trastevere, and excursions to the ancient Roman villas and Castelli. Few cities are as historically rich as Rome, with its layers of treasures from the days of the ancient empire to medieval and Renaissance times, all juxtaposed with the evidence of a bustling modern capital. Insight’s trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Roman cuisine, the city’s great shopping, and its key historical dates. Hand-picked places to eat and drink are highlighted in each tour and in the directory section, which contains a wealth of useful practical information including a language guide, as well as a range of carefully selected hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the useful pull-out map, and the beautiful photography shows off the splendor of Rome.
