    Highly recommended

    I currently live in Rome, and keep stacks of Rick's guides for myself and for my visitors. His guide to Rome is practical, thorough, easy-to read, and has enough interesting bits of information that it is useful for anyone from a day-tripper to a long-time resident. If you are planning a trip to Rome, you will want to read this guide and take it with you... you won't need any others!

    Great book! Less than useful maps

    Overall a great book. Maps cannot be enlarged rendering them essentially useless. Which is why it received four stars.

    I just came back from our trip to Rome. We stayed there for a week. This is a great book, it has good recomendations and tips. The only thing I didnt like was the suggestion of seeing Roma in a week. We did that and it was a waste of money, we could have done the same thing in half of the time. We did everything in the morning and by 3PM we didnt have anything else to do, just walk around.

    Loved Rome but not fond of Rick Steves' Nook book

    My sister traveled with me and she had the hard copy book which I liked. However the Nook version was harder to qickly navigate through and the maps are utterly useless as when you enlarge them so you can actually use them they are unreadable. I really regret that i purchased the Nook version and I will never make that mistake again. I was misled to beluev the maps could be enlarged but they are low res images that are useless when enlarged. To be clear, would have given it 5 stars if I had bought the hard copy. I am a huge fan of his series.

    My husband and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Rome and

    My husband and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Rome and this book made it even better. Prior to our trip we purchased a number of guides but this was the only one we needed. It contains your standard information (list of highlights, places to eat, places to stay, etc.) but also detailed "tours" of Rome's most interesting spots. I thought the tours were very helpful as they point out the highlights of each place (I have a background in ancient history and they even included some things I didn't know) without getting into boring details. I would highly highly recommend this book!!!!!!!
