I got this for my 10-year-old granddaughter to study before we go to Rome, so she can pick out what she wants to see. Some places require advance tickets, so it's helpful to plan ahead. The writing styles is quite accessible for kids and descriptions of the major tourist sites give background info as well as sidebars with games and enticements to make visits more enjoyable for youngsters. It has useful info on how to get to places and also recommendations for places to eat that will appeal to the younger set. I'm looking forward to seeing what my granddaughter comes up with after reading the guidebook.
Great book! Used several of their suggestions for meals and were not disappointed. Highly recommend
