Reviews - What do customers think about Italy: Monuments of Past and Present (Monuments Past and Present)?
Imagining the Past Feb 16, 2010
We were in Italy in 1997 and these wonderful books were for sale. However, the thought of carrying around the extra weight was too much to overcome AND I thought we would be able to find the book in the states. Wrong. We are so thrilled to have this book in our collection. It does such a great job of presenting what the current ruins might have looked like in their prime. Love those acetate layers. For anyone studying ancient Italy, getting ready to tour Italy or just curious, this is wonderful book.
Pre-Travel must! Apr 25, 2009
I purchased this book for my family prior to taking a trip to Italy. It really gives a great idea of what the ruins looked like in earlier times and makes them come alive. I would highly suggest you purchase this book for children or adults - and I'm very hopeful that it will fit in my suitcase! We also purchased the Ancient Greece book, but I do like this one better for it's smaller size.
