"The Civilized Shopper's Guide to Rome" by Margaret Brucia and Pamela Keech
If you are interested in seeing a Rome that rarely reveals itself to tourists, then you will enjoy the Civilized Shoppers Guide to Rome. This little book (literally 4"x 4") is a great companion to take with you as you search for out-of-the-way antiques shops and vintage clothing stores. And it's detailed with many stops for coffee and lunch on the way! Written by two long-time American (part-time) residents of Rome, the book provides size conversion charts, maps, and extensive contact information for each store listed.
