Synopses & Reviews
History in Rome is not confined to museums, basilicas and galleries: it tumbles out everywhere. And though the city is reassuringly compact, this doesn't stop the cultural onslaught from being utterly bewildering and exhausting. It is best to approach the city knowing you will not see everything. It is also important not to shut oneself up inside all day looking at collections and sites or you will miss all that the outdoor scene has to offer.
Time Out Rome helps you navigate through the cobblestone streets, so that you can eat, drink and shop like the natives.
Suggested side trips out of town are also explored.
