schema:description"In this tour book unlike any other, diplomat Frederick Vreeland and his artist wife Vanessa guide visitors and armchair travelers through layers of time--from the ruins of antiquity to Renaissance palaces to the trendiest new shops and restaurants--exploring major sites and revealing insider secrets. Written in a brisk, anecdotal style, this handbook is packed with photographs, historical drawings, sidebars, foldout maps, and floor plans and has been completely updated from its original Italian edition (2000). Organized into four sections--Ancient, Christian, Renaissance and Baroque, plus Shopping and the Grand Tour--the guidebook's succinct descriptions of the sights are framed by historical timelines and punctuated by special "must-see" highlights. A comprehensive reference section at the back details day trips of interest, a guide to Italian food, the newest in specialty shops and boutiques, Rome by night and Rome for kids, as well as transportation facts, hotel and restaurant suggestions, and more.--From publisher description."
