Description

In this book, Sasek does a superb job of presenting the Eternal City as it might appear to a young tourist - as a kaleidoscopic array of strange and fascinating sights with its gaily garbed theological students, whizzing Vespas, imposing relics of antiquity, all of the things which make Rome like to other city in the world.

Review Text

"Very little can match the pleasure of first discovering that, with the right book, you can journey around the world from the comfort of your favorite armchair. ..Sasek's beloved series of children's travel books will easily evoke rambling urges in readers young and old alike, and stir up pleasant nostalgia in those experienced enough to have traveled to the places portrayed. We easily lost ourselves in the colorful world of This is Rome.." ~Gayot
