Overview

If a standard guidebook has never given you entree to the Rome you seek, let City Secrets unlock the door. See the world's most magnificent art, architecture and antiquities through the eyes of the people who know them best: a renowned painter shows the way to an overlooked masterpiece; an archaeologist walks you through an intriguing ancient ruin; a Renaissance scholar tells which of Michelangelo's works he finds most moving of all. Along the way, a poet laureate shares the address of a gourmet cheese shop with its own pizzeria, and an acclaimed director sets the stage for an ideal Roman afternoon. A unique compilation, City Secrets: Rome is the key to a new kind of travel.
