Description

Discover" la dolce vita" on this grand tour of Italy s historic capital told through 30 dramatic true stories spanning nearly 3,000 years, plus detailed walking tours complete with easy-to-read maps. From the Curia Pompei, site of Julius Caesar s assassination in 44 BC, to the Borgia Apartments in the Vatican, see the real-life places where history happened in this richly illustrated guide. Along with infamous power games between heroes and villains, you will find Rome s smart and powerful women, such as Agrippina, St. Agnes, Margherita, Artemisia, and more. Then relax like Goethe and Keats at the Cafe Greco, Rome s chicest coffee bar since 1760, or visit the Palazzo Colonna, the site of Audrey Hepburn s "Roman Holiday.""
