City Secrets: Rome

by Robert Kahn (Editor)

In City Secrets: Rome, a number of architects, artists, writers, archaeologists, and historians at the prestigious American Academy in Rome write of their favorite spots in the city. Reading this book is like attending a reception at the academy and listening to academy residents offer glowing accounts of some of Rome’s many treasures. Although rather small in size, it could serve as a delightful vademecum for tourists in Rome and provide them with an artful insight into Rome’s familiar or not-so-familiar attractions.
