It is said that Rome contains more sights than any other city in the world, and the eternal city's staggering wealth of historic monuments, paintings, sculptures, Romanesque churches, Rococo fountains, and Renaissance palazzi draws millions of visitors every year. Cadogan's Italy experts explore every jam-packed inch of the capital, providing a fresh take on the tourist attractions of the last two thousand years: from the otherworldliness of the Forum to the magnetic Trevi Fountain. The guide contains a special section on the Vatican City and Sistine Chapel, with detailed plans, and gives comprehensive information on hotels, restaurants, entertainment, activities, and festivals.
