Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This insightful book allows the visitor to 'upgrade' from tourist to native as it reveals the hidden secrets of a city where the ancient is forever entwined with the modern. As Nick Wyke takes us around the fascinating city of Rome he uncovers sights and treasures that are often overlooked by other holiday guides. He explores its cultural treasures, beautiful gardens, Roman characters, specialist shops and 'amorous' Rome. He provides an in-depth look at Roman cuisine, visiting famous cafes, daily food markets, wine cellars and restaurants, highlighting the best places to enjoy the perfect cup of coffee, ice cream, or Ancient Roman dishes such as stuffed 'doormice' and sparrows. There is also a chapter dedicated to treats to keep the children smiling. This is a companion volume to Kate Muir's bestselling The Insider's Guide to Paris, also published by Robson Books (ISBN 1861051654).
