Insight Guides City Guide Rome (Insight City Guides), 10th Edition

Review :

This 320-page book - the September 2018 (10th) printed edition - is a colourful and informative guide to Italy's capital city - for real visitors and armchair travellers alike.

It has all the usual features, with excellent maps and a larger font than the Eyewitness guides (for example). There are excellent colour photos breaking up the text columns, and informative and easy to read articles and listings.
