If you are the go-getter type and decide on a daily basis where you want to go and what you want to see, just pack your guidebook into your hand luggage and enjoy every day, wherever the mood takes you.
The book is packed with all important information on the sights in Rome you shouldn’t miss during your visit. The detailed maps help you to find your way around Rome without getting lost. And even if you get lost, Rome has something new to explore around every corner. It gives you places of interests in the different areas of Rome and even some suggested walking tours.
You could follow the included itinerary of 4 Great Days in Rome, which covers visits to sights in Ancient Rome, Christian Rome as well as arts and shopping. The book will also give you an idea of how much money you should put aside for various activities, i.e. museum entrance fees etc, which is – in my opinion – very useful if you want to plan ahead how much money you are likely to spend.
The maps give information on hotels, restaurants, shops etc. In addition, I am sure that you will find the included photographs inspiring and you will find it hard to resist a visit to this beautiful city.
All in all, whether you are looking to indulge yourself in the rich and ancient history of Rome with a visit to the Colosseum, learn about the Vatican and Roman Catholicism through a visit to St Peter’s, or enjoy a browse through Italian designer stores – there is something for every taste in this guidebook.
