Publisher Comments:

The guide that shows you what other travel books only tell you! Before you embark on a Roman holiday, take along the only guide that shows you the Eternal City in all its glory — DK's Eyewitness Travel Guide: Rome. The city's seventeen districts are easily navigated using precise street-by-street maps and stunningly illustrated aerial overviews that lead you to all the city's attractions. The spectacular Colosseum is featured in an astonishing cross-section capturing its history and architecture, all highlighted by a remarkable illustrated recreation of how this impressive amphitheatre looked in ancient times. The wonders of the Vatican are compiled in a marvelous twenty-five page chapter that offers a tour of the complex, floor plans of its museums and chapels, and photos of its architectural features, major religious artifacts, and stunning art collection. An excellent city for walking, six guided walks direct you along such enthralling routes as the Tiber River, the Renaissance street Via Guilia, Rome's Triumphal Arches, the city's best mosaics, Via Appa Antica, or around Bernini's Rome. From the early Republic to its contemporary daily life, Rome's fascinating history is skillfully explored in an informative chapter complete with detailed editorial, timelines, masterful illustrations, and photos of its astounding artifacts and art. The city's people, culture, robust cuisine, delicious wines, and bountiful shopping are also highlighted in special features throughout the guide. The city wasn't built in a day, nor can its sights be seen in one. So get a head start now on your many days there, with DK's Eyewitness Travel Guide: Rome. Truly the guides that show you what others only tell you, this book features stunning 3D and cutaway views of museums, cathedrals, and other must-see sights; detailed street maps; a handy phrase section; advice on the best places to eat, drink, shop, sleep, and be entertained; and a Survival Guide to help the traveler sort out essential information such as currency, transportation, and communications. As world traveler and TV personality Michael Palin says, "the Eyewitness Travel Guides are irresistibly seductive.... They also deliver where it matters most — uncluttered and accurate information."

Book News Annotation:

Dorling Kindersley is gaining a disproportionate share of the US market in the broad category of illustrated books. Rome epitomizes their products and explains their popularity. Lucid drawings--bird's eye views, cutaways of buildings, plans--some 1,200 color photos, and a little text. Useful overview.
