This Combo Includes:

- Rick Steves' Rome Guidebook
Rome is a showcase of Western civilization with astonishingly ancient sights, but with the kind of chaos that only an Italian can understand. You'll find Rome's buildings, cats, laundry, traffic, and 2.6 million people endlessly entertaining. And then there are its sights. Tour St. Peter's, the greatest church on earth, and scale Michelangelo's 328-foot-tall dome. Learn something about eternity by touring the huge Vatican Museum. Take an early evening "Dolce Vita Stroll" down the Via del Corso, and enjoy an after-dark walk from Campo de' Fiori to the Spanish Steps, lacing together Rome's Baroque and bubbly nightspots. In this handy volume, you'll find in-depth Rick-tested information on trip planning, the top sights, hotels, restaurants, tourist offices, transportation, staying connected (phones and internet), weather, festivals and holidays, plus survival phrases, easy-to-follow maps, and great self-guided neighborhood walks and museum tours.
