    Don't leave home without it!

    I don't see why somebody would like to go to Rome and not take Rick's advises along. Rick provides a down to earth view of the 'eternal' city with lot of EXTREMELY USEFUL information (like, where the bathrooms are). He not only provides the basic tourist information but he also recommends paths to follow and hints that will help you to get the most of your trip. So packup your stuff and bring this book along!
