Inhaltsangabe: (The author) has an observant and enthusiastic eye, she writes elegantly and with warmth, and knows her subject inside out. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH The best guide to Rome published for many a long year SUNDAY TIMES Rome is a city with over 2,500 years of history, with buildings and art treasures representative of much of that time; as Augustus Hare wrote, the fascination lies in the discovery of 'ancient cloister and sculptured fountain, of mouldering fresco and medieval tomb - of mosaic-crowned gateway and palm-shadowed garden - and the gradually acquired knowledge of the wondrous story which clings around each of these ancient things'. Georgina Masson's book provides the perfect companion to this voyage of discovery, including both the great sights - the Colosseum, the Forum, the Vatican Palace and many more - and the smaller corners of Rome's squares and streets; she guides the visitor equally skilfully though the maze of the Roman past. And she evokes the reactions of earlier travellers to Rome, who, like the author of the twelfth-century pilgrims' guide to the marvels of the city, have been equally entranced by the city's classical monuments and its Christian heritage. Her book has long been recognised as a classic, and is now presented in a fully revised and updated edition.
Inhaltsangabe: Six years after his first, very thorough, revision, John Fort has returned to the task, so that this long-honoured guidebook, regarded by the discerning visitor, since its first publication forty years ago, as THE indispensable introduction to the glories of Rome, continues to give an accurate picture of the city's treasures as they are currently displayed. This latest edition of the Guide is immeasurably enhanced by the replacement of the old street plans with new, clear versions of the itineraries that structure a volume which remains the unrivalled guide to perhaps the most beautiful and historic city in the world. John Fort, who has lived in the city for the past thirty years, walked every step of the routes described so vividly by Georgina Masson, and many more besides. In addition to checking and updating the information she provided so inimitably, he uncovered and describes a wealth of sights which slipped her notice, and accompanies the visitor through all the major museums and galleries as now arranged. The result is a guide to that incomparable array of classical, Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces which will enthral first-time visitors to the Eternal City and also delight the persistent returnee with fresh inspiration and stimulation.
