This book was such a delight to use when I was in Rome (way back in 2001). It is no substitute for a more mass market guide book (unless you want to sleep in parks), but is a wonderful companion to Rome by those who love the city and its culture, history and people. It is also a great book to read about Rome, whether you are there or not: it is packed with fascinating insights and little known facts. And I love such idiosyncratic gems as: if it snows in Rome, go straight to the Pantheon and watch the column of snow descend from the oculus (p. 109)

This is a completely ENJOYABLE book to read! A PURE DELIGHT!! Especially for those of us who have had the good fortune to have lived in Rome at some time in our lives.
