Per usual, I loved reading this wonderfully-written Lonely Planet book, detailing all aspects of Rome. I used this book on my travels, and there are some lovely places detailed in this travel guide, which I just had to go to. Thank you Lonely Planet for your advice!

Some places to visit are:
- The Trevi Fountain, with many beautiful statues. Want to learn some history, and how to properly throw a coin into the fountain?

Much of it read like the authors were phoning it in. A lot of useful info was left out and the guide catered to a well-heeled crowd, focusing only on costly high-culture activities. For instance, Rome's excellent flea markets did not merit attention whereas a potted history was shoved in the back pages. Not one of the better Lonely Planet guidebooks.

I have bought several Lonely Planet guidebooks by now and I always read them from cover to cover. They are always full of useful information, not only about the tourist attractions but about the city or country in general, including culture, history and religion. This Rome edition even had a (rather short) section on the typical Roman's day which was very interesting. The survival guide toward the back is also very useful! Best of all was the pull-out map!

One complaint I could make would be that

It took several months, and at the end – broke but inspired – they sat at their kitchen table writing and stapling together their first travel guide, Across Asia on the Cheap. Within a week th
