Strolling Through Rome: The Definitive Walking Guide to the Eternal City Reviews
The subtitle of this book is The Definitive Walking Guide to the Eternal City. The 15 walking tours are varied through era and location, and include:
In his own words (and the sub-title) of the book, this is the definitive walking guide to the Eternal City, and his word is good enough for me. All kidding aside, Professore Erasmo (who previously wrote a guide to Florence/Firenza), has a PhD from Yale and teaches Classics at the University of Georgia. If you look on the UGA website, you will see that his students rave about him as a teacher.
Not quite what I expected....and maps are HORRIBLE.
