Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312131127, Paperback)
Rome, the Eternal City; it is here, perhaps more than anywhere else, that the visitor is conscious of the echoes of antiquity. Artists, writers, historians, poets--all have included Rome in their travels; and their reactions--whether amazement, adulation, or surprise--have added to the city's allure. James, Isben, Dickens, Goethe, Woolf, and Wilde are among those who have written with passion about Rome, and through them we rediscover a city of grandeur and intimacy, as vibrant and sensual as ever.
Arranged as a series of walks through the city, this book is both an illuminating guide for the visitor to Rome and a delight to read at home for those who love the city and want to enrich their knowledge of it.
