Last time I went to Rome I packed this delightful volume As it says This is a highly subjective guidebook, reflecting the personal visions of our respondents It is highly successful in that Agree or disagree with points of view, they are thought provoking and a joy to read.The only slight difficulty I have with the book is that I need a very strong light to read it in, what with middle aged eyesight The sepia like print, whilst adding to the aesthetics of the book, is not as distinct as a clearer print might be. I brought this little gem with me to Rome to highlight various locations and sites as I visited them It adds additional perspectives from a variety of sources and helps you make some sort of sense of the cacophony known as Rome Use it to accompany your guide book to supplement it.
