As well as all the glories of Rome, this handsomely illustrated guide explores neighborhood markets, tiny parks, convents, traditional Jewish restaurants, the treasures of fading palazzi, and of museums to be visited at night. It leads you down narrow cobbled streets as charming as in any small provincial town. It tells you where to row a boat, visit waxworks, see a talking statue, or buy a handbag. It will lead you to the most beautiful views, the most spectacular mosaics, and the very finest coffee. Use this guide, arranged around 10 walks, to explore beyond the familiar tourist sites to discover the living city and the layers of its glorious past. Elizabeth Speller read Archaeology and Classics at Cambridge; her previous book was Athens: A New Guide.
