Full of helpful "heads-up" hints Aug 29, 2008
We recently travelled to Rome with our four children, aged 10 and under. An ambitious (crazy?) challenge to begin with, we were worried about battling crowds and wasting time at sites that would tire or bore the kids. This book was an invaluable source of helpful hints for avoiding lines, narrowing down overwhelming tourist traps to just the parts that the kids would find interesting, and suggesting quick places for family friendly snacking, resting, or pit-stopping based on where we decided to go each day. It was easy to reference, and even our well-seasoned travelling companion was impressed by the "back door" tips it had to offer for navigating popular sites. There were days that my husband and I had to admit that the book was our family's lifesaver!
Even great for adults! Apr 16, 2008
My daughter (11) and I loved planning our trip to Rome with this book! It ended up being the only book we carried with us as we toured the Eternal City. The information was great with wonderful tidbits to keep the interest level high. There are terrific pictures throughout although without a frame of reference for size, we were always surprised to find out something was MUCH bigger than we thought it was going to be! That was always good for a laugh. Since we were staying nearby, the recomended gelato stand between the Pantheon and Piazza Navona became our regular nightcap and it is the best in the city! Great tip! We even sent another family there. We homeschool so this was our field trip and this book was invaluable for our needs. Our copy has been our notebook and is full of written notes, highlighting, post-it notes, and drawings. Thank goodness the printing is such great quality. We wouldn't part with it for anything! Ciao!
