I highly recommend this book as a travel guide. It's a must have when you're going to or planning to go to Rome.
Book Description: Rome is beautiful, rich in culture, art and history, colorful and full of life. Some even call it the most desirable and liveable of the world's capitals. “The Eternal City” offers you famous historical monuments and ruins, ornate and majestic churches and priceless artwork. Life in Rome rightfully is called La Dolce Vita.
There are so may things to see in Rome a lifetime certainly isn't enough. However, for a start, we have provided a list of 31 of the most important places to see to get you started.
Author's Inspiration: The city of Rome itself and her experience from living there.
From the Book: Indeed, the foundation laid by the ancient Romans was so ingenious that most of that original and very logical infrastructure remains in use today, the old roads simply repaved and modernized. Rome functions amazingly well as a city and its center is quite safe, (although one always needs to take the necessary precautions of avoiding pickpockets and shady areas as one would in any city).
Rome is convenient, with excellent transportation (don't be afraid to take the Metro!). And if you find on your visit you need a direction do not hesitate to ask for assistance. Warm, charming, ever helpful Romans will be quick to lend you a hand and a smile. And if you don't speak Italian don't fret – Italians are master communicators.
A city fill of life, exceptional beauty, exciting energy and internal and external sunshine, Rome is one of the best places I have lived. I always miss it. You will love it.
