    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.
