5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent updated edition of the definitive classic 13 mai 2011
Par Joe Galascione - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've relied heavily on the prior edition of this guide over the last 10 years to guide me around, over and under the most beautiful city in the world and it's quickly become one of the most cherished books in my possession. This new edition is fully updated and reveals the most recent discoveries and sites which have been discovered/reopened. It even gives a detailed walk through of the House of Livia, which wasn't even opened to the public until months after the book was printed. This book is worth it's weight in gold to anyone trying to decipher and understand the mysteries and riddles of the eternal city. Cannot recommend enough

4.0 étoiles sur 5 excellent guide; absurd cover 27 octobre 2010
Par F. Tronchin - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have used previous editions of Claridge's book, both in the classroom and on-site in Rome. It is an excellent resource with clear plans, up-to-date information, and very helpful introductory chapters.

But what absolutely astounds me about this edition is the cover. Why on Earth has the oculus of the Pantheon--one of Rome's most iconic buildings--been edited out!? Not only have the designers/editors/whoever erased one of the most distinctive aspects of the Pantheon itself, but they will have befuddled a new generation of budding architectural historians.

I am a history buff on her way to Italy. This is awesome! Easy to read. Easy to wade through topics of uninterest or already-know-this. Pictures. All around very good for touring with the details.

I love this book, especially while I am studying a classical civilization subject. It is a list of all the classical sites you can see in Rome. Amanda Claridge not only has ancient maps regarding their ancient location, but goes through each sites and lists its history. At the back of the book is also a list of museums and their websites, opening and closing times, and ticket prices. A list of churchs and other free locations to visit are listed as well. This book has made my experience in Rome a lot better, allowing me not only to view Rome in its present modern state, but also to see it as it once was.
