Rome is a heady mix of the ancient and modern: the romance of the Roman Forum, the opulence of the Pantheon, the grandeur of Saint Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums, and the riveting historical theater of the street. Rome in Detail is the sophisticated traveler's ultimate guide to the Eternal City. With twenty-five walking tours through nine neighborhoods, and complete with eighteen maps, this book is the ideal introduction to the city's exceptional cultural treasures, from popular favorites to lesser known but extraordinary sites away from the tourist throng. Unlike most travel books, this guide relies heavily on locals whose expert knowledge provide's tourists with an ample selection of the city's best attractions, hotels, restaurants, and nightspots. A "Best of" chapter offers information on the choicest gourmet shops, the creamiest gelato, the most romantic corners, and the liveliest marketplaces.
