Overview

Rachel Kaplan's charming and informative guides to the little-known museums of Paris, London, and Berlin have won enthusiastic praise. "Wonderful color illustrations make perusing a joy," raved Library Journal of the Paris guide. "A Brilliant museum companion," said Conde Nast Traveler's website about the London book. Of the Berlin volume, Knight-Ridder News Service: "These off-the-beaten-track treasures will delight even the most jaded traveler....Before you go, get this guide."

Now, in Rome's Jubilee Year, when the Eternal City expects as many as 50 million visitors, Kaplan reveals the enchantments of 30 often-overlooked museums in the city and nearby countryside. Ranging from the Burcardo Theatre Museum and the Sabine Olive Oil Museum to the new ACEA Art Center at the Montemartini Power Station and the Rome Museum of Criminology, the varied venues offer something for everyone. Maps, addresses, phone numbers, and hours are included.
