Item description for Insider's Rome (Insiders) by D. Eric Maikranz...

To appreciate a city fully is to understand the underpinnings of its past. A city's history is made from a rich mlange of events, some well-known and others well-hidden. The 'Insider's' series acts as a companion for those in search of the what, why, and when of a city and its history.

Rome---the Eternal City---is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Once the ancient center of the world and the seat of kings, emperors, and popes, Rome has fascinated and captivated all who have ventured there. In INSIDER'S ROME, author D. Eric Maikranz explores little-known aspects of a selection of the city's famous and not-so-famous personalities and landmarks. His collection of captivating stories will make you pause, think, and appreciate the city in its historical totality. From the scandals at the Vatican to stalwart 'talking' statues, from freethinking philosophers to great scientific minds, and from unparalleled artworks to colossal monuments, INSIDER'S ROME offers a delightful backstairs tour of the Eternal City.

Features include:
*Travel information
*Revelatory stories
*Colour photographs
*Short walks
*Author's recommendations on where to sightsee, eat, and stay.

Reviews - What do customers think about Insider's Rome (Insiders)?

Excellent book  Aug 2, 2005
this book is a must read for those who wish to travel to Rome, and also makes a very interesting read in any case.
The book has several interesting chapters which detail the varied historical episodes in Romes history
Great background for a visit to Rome. It changed my trip.  Sep 21, 2004
I have been to Rome once before and thought I knew the city until I found this book. Most guidebooks only give a sentence or two about a site or a church, this book goes into much more detail, detail that is interesting and reads well. If you like history and want more background and historical 'storyline' about the places you are visiting then this book is for you.
If you want to know what the contorted womans' faces are around the altar in St. Peter's, get this book. If you want to know why a snake is biting a man's genitals in a fresco in Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel, get this book. If you want to know the details about how the Borghese Museum collection was assembled, get this book. Are the bones of St. Peter really in the Basilica? Get this book and find out. Details on Caligula, Nero, Borgia and more.
This book also outlines some secluded and quiet hotels (a rare find in Rome) though some were pricey and it also lists restaurants off the beaten path (hope your Italian is up to scratch for some places). Good listing for shopping too. The maps are ok and there is a list of suggested walks, but I like to wander around and get lost.
Not your normal travel guidebook, but I'm not a normal traveller.
