Blue Guide Rome (Blue Guides)

Blue Guides: Complete Cultural Guides -- Blue Guide Rome is the tenth edition of this popular guide to the Eternal City and an essential handbook for any traveller who wants to understand fully and know Rome. Completely updated, this edition retains its focus on art history and architecture, with superb plans and illustrations, and full coverage of new museums. There is also greatly expanded coverage of places to stay and eat. The depth and quality of research makes this book the best guide for independent travellers and all students of art history, architecture and the ancient world. It works both as an on-site guide as well as a planning or research resource. Illustrations to inform rather than to decorate, maps, diagrams, floor plans, architectural details and photographs. -- "Often plagiarised by other guide writers, Blue Guides have always been a gold standard for accuracy and depth" Daily Telegraph. "Guide books in the grand tradition of thoroughness and objectivity" Georgia Review.
