5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent guide, with plenty of photos, and informative narratives on restaraurants, etc. 2. Mai 2012
Von Tom Brody - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
ROME by Garwood and Hole is a 367-page guidebook from the LONELY PLANET series. The book is printed on dull paper, not glossy paper. There are plenty of decent-sized photographs, most of them 1/3 page size. The rear cover contains a multi-colored fold-out map (gray, green, red, purple, blue, black). The map shows Rome's downtown area, and one can easily detect sites of interest, such as the star-shaped grounds of CASTEL SANT ANGELO, PIAZZA NAVONA, PANTHEON, CAPITOLINE MUSEUMS, COLOSSEUM, BASILICA DEI SANTI APOSTOLI, and SPANISH STEPS. The map shows the location of many piazzas, chiesas (Italian for church), basilicas, and museos. The flip side of the map shows metro lines that lead from the suburbs to central Rome.

The guidebook has nine chapters (pages 56-218): (1) Ancient Rome; (2) CENTRO STORICO; (3) TRIDENTE, TREVI & QUIRINALE; (4) MONTI, ESQUILINO, & SAN LORENZO; (5) SAN GIOVANNI to TESTACCIO; (6) Southern Rome; (7) TRASTEVERE & GIANICOLO; (8) Vatican City; and (9) VILLA BORHESE & Northern Rome. Rather than jump immediately into detailed topics, this guidebook gently introduces the reader to the subject of Rome by way of several introductory sections (pages 1-55), with titles such as, Rome's Top 13; What's New; Need to Know; Top Itineraries; If You Like; Month By Month; With Kids; Eating; Drinking and Night Life; Entertainment; and Shopping.

A small map on page 3 provides a "big picture" of the organization of Rome, and we learn that the districts of Rome are called, CENTRO STORICA (the subject of the large fold-out map); Vatican City; Villa Borghese and northern Rome; Tridente; Ancient Rome; Monti; San Giovanni; and Southern Rome.

Regarding the photographs, we see ancient Colosseum (a time-exposure done at night) (page 6); Palatino (made of tan-colored brick) (pae 7); Museo e Galleria Borghese (a symmetrical white building housing works by Canova, Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titian), Pantheon (interior photo of a huge dome with dozens of tourists milling about under the dome); St. Peter's Basilica (resembles Grand Central Station in New York City, except without nervous New Yorkers running to catch their train) (page 10); and a half-dozen other photos showing Capitoline Museums (the world's oldest museum) (page 12); Roman Forum (page 13); a photo of one of Rome's piazzas; Viterbo (a former city center in medieval times); and another piazza (page 14). Later on in the book, we see sculptures of philosophers (page 25), St.Peter's Basilica (page 29); another photo of Colosseum (page 58); another photo of Palatino, showing a crumbling wall that reeals the interior of a dome within the crumbled building (page 60); another photo of Pantheon, where the facade of an ancient building reads: MAGRIPPAIFCOSTERTIVM (page 75).

Further regarding the photographs, we see a large photo of a sculpture of a horse residing in a pond, and a sculpture of a map with a snake twisted about his leg (pages 84-85); and Spanish Steps (at the head of the steps is a building with two towers, each tower capped with a blue dome) (page 105); photo of interior of Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli, with its multi-colored dome and multi-colored walls (page 130); Appian Way (cobblestone street built in 312 BC) (page 160); Roman Catacombs (subterranean burial site) (pages 162-163); ceiling of Basilica di Santa Maria in Trastevere (the ceiling has compartments shaped in octagons, plus-signs, L-shaped arrows, and the letter B) (page 171)., St.Peter's Basilica at night, showing a football-shaped dome with an illuminated crown on top of the dome (page 184), interior of Vatican Museum, showing display of sculptures of horses and other animals, and of human figures (page 189), and last but not least, five photographs of the Sistine Chapel (pages 195-199). Also shown, are photos of works by Bernini, Canova, Carravaggio, and Titian, at Musee e Galleria Borghese (pages 210-211). Later on in this book, we see photos of the interior of Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, showing a wall with an ornate relief sculpture flanking a large sculpture of a priest (page 285). There are also a couple of photographs of modern buildings (pages 286-287).

EXAMPLE OF ANECDOTES IN THE TEXT. Regarding the text, we read (page 79) about Piazza Pasquino, which is often called the "talking statue," because of the fact that, "in the 16th century, when dissent was forbidden, a tailor named Pasquino began sticking notes to the statue with satirical versus lampooning the church and aristocracy. Others joined in and soon there were talking stones all over town." (page 79) A couple of pages later, we read about another statue (Palazzo Spada) where there are conventional statues, but also a statue of a hedge (a lawn hedge), which was carved because the sculptor (Borromini) "didn't trust the gardeners to clip a real hedge precisely enough so he made one of stone" (page 81). As one can see, this guidebook contains intriguing and relevant anecdotes, which make the book as a whole, a lively read.

RESTAURANTS. In view of the fact that Rome was the center of the power and culture of the Western world, for so long, it is no surprise that this guidebook contains tons of information about palaces, museums, churches, and such, as well as information on the people who held administrative positions. But, as with all guidebooks, there is also info on restaurants, hotels, and transportation. We read, for example, that La Rossetta (phone 06 686 1002) serves, "scallops with cram of artichoke and mint" (page 89) We read that Trattoria Monti (phone 06 446 6573) serves, "sheep's cheese aged in caves, goose, swordfish, sultanas, and truffles" (page 138).

HOTELS. Regarding hotels, we learn that the recommended hotels in the district called, MONTI, ESQUILINO & SAN LORENZO, includes Villa Spalletti Trivelli (the rooms overlook the gardens of Quirinale); Hotel Duca D'Alba (the rooms have walls covered with fabric); Residenza Cellini (decor includes potted palms and oil paintings); and Albergo Giusti (this hotel is run by nuns. I guess that I should not be bringing my girlfriend to THIS PARTICULAR HOTEL!). The chapter on hotels (pages 236-248) contains a paragraph about each of 80 hotels.

WARNINGS. The book is to be commended for its honesty, and there are two pages that warn the tourist about pickpockets and gropers (pages 314-315). The guidebook also contains a chapter on history and demographics (pages 249-283), and we learn about various evil emperors and about recent political scandals.

CONCLUSION. The wealth of detail, intriguing facts, and anecdotes about history, will be an inspiration to all readers. My only complaint is that the photos are not on glossy paper.

1.0 von 5 Sternen a disappointment 1. Dezember 2012
Von Giovanni Deamici - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I have used Lonely Planets guide books for almost 20 years in three continents; this is the first time I feel the book is not worth the purchase cost.
Since Roma (Rome) is a city I have visited in the past, I was looking for hints and tips to less-visited places. After all this guide is supposed to be written by someone who actually lives in the city.
Alas, the volume is very skimpy in the discussion of the history and art of the monuments, to the point of lacking even what I would consider some basic info. The sight are grouped by areas, in haphazard order, so that one has to keep flipping back-and-forth through the pages to find the description of what he is seeing. The book index is poorly organized, and cross-references are few and far between.
No pre-defined walking routes are mapped or suggested.
The included city map is alphabetized atrociously; instead of being organized by the relevant noun, it takes the geographical identifier as the starting point for the index. So, for example, "via del Gianicolo" is found in the 'V' part of the index, and "passeggiata di Gianicolo" in the 'P' part, instead of both being next to each other in the 'G' part as "Gianicolo, via del" and "Gianicolo, passeggiata di". By comparison the free maps distributed by the local tourist office are an example of clarity and usefulness.
This was the first time I purchased a second guide (the Rick Steve's one, which is better but still not outstanding) and intentionally left this book in the hotel room, to avoid bringing it back with me.
I would reccomend this guide only to someone who thinks that the essential parts of travelling is sampling the local nightlife and shopping the high fashion district.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Let's go Rome!!!! 2. Mai 2012
Von L. Perry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
No regrets on choosing this little gem. I only wish for more time in Rome!

Roma IS an amaaaazing city. You MUST see it.

And this is a good little guide. Things I really LIKE about it:
1) Handy portable size,small enough for a bag or to tote-along with you, but large enough to cram in lots of information and some pictures.
2) Though it doesn't really have a LOT of pictures (I wish for more), it does seem to have at least one good shot of most all of the big stuff (Rome is so FULL, it's really not possible for a small guide to photograph EVERYTHING).
3) The "What's new" section.
4) Handy details, like...where are the "loos" in relation to the Colleseum.
5) On a short trip? There are helpful suggestions like "Rome's Top 13" and a suggested three hour itenerary for the highlight's of the Vatican.
6) Got more time? Infomation on day escusions outside the side.
7) Month by month festival suggestions.
8) Clear tear out maps. Plenty of maps.

And...why it lost a star:
1.) I did want more pics.
2.) Wish it was a little more at-first-glance usable. Took a little more getting-to-know, but it was inviting.*** (This is the main reason for the lost star.)
3.) Wished for a few more short-trip maximize-you-time suggestions (like #5 above).
4.) Kind of wanted glossier pages.

Good stuff. It's not *perfect* but I recommend. And I would definately buy another Loney Planet Book.

PRINT SIZE: Not a criticism here. It HAS to be smallish to cram enough into this small book, but if you've graduated to reading glasses: Yes, you will need them for this.

The kind version was not great, maps were all blurry and it was to much going back and forward in the book so it was easy to get lost. Would not recommend the kindle version of this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ready to start packing! 20. April 2012
Von N. B. Kennedy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I'm used to traveling independently, and I've long wanted to go to Rome. But the task of planning a trip to this huge city always seemed to get the best of me, and off we'd go to London again.

Now, with this Lonely Planet guide, I am finally ready to take on the city! I love how the neighborhoods are examined separately, along with an executive-summary type of "Top Sights" for each area.

The photography is evocative and even educational. I'd never taken a really good look at photos of the Sistene Chapel ceiling. Now I'm really eager to see it.

Accommodations always seemed a sticky thing, too. How do you know what part of the city you want to stay in? I'm always trying to put budget together with pleasant and quiet (and non-touristy). I like the editors' list of favorite hotels in the back of the book.

When I finally do make that trip, I'll be sure to use this guide. And, to get my son interested, I'll throw in a copy of Lonely Planet's Not For Parents Rome. It's not a guide, but rather an illustrated romp through Rome past and present, with interesting tidbits to peak a person's (not just a kid's) interest.
