Knopf Guide to Rome
The Knopf Guide to Rome is a guidebook like no other. A work of art in itself, the guidebook contains indexes to the flora and fauna of Rome, explanations of the various art historical periods and architectural orders, and extensive reflections upon the famous emperors, popes and artists of Rome. Included in the book are detailed street and topography maps, overlays of reconstructions of ancient ruins, and countless images of paintings, sculptures and drawings all printed in the highest quality. It is the perfect book for the traveler who is interested in the history and art history of Rome. But don't worry-there is a very good section on practical information as well, so you will not be without suggestions for hotels, dining and shopping.
