City of the Soul: A Walk in Rome | [William Murray]

City of the Soul: A Walk in Rome

The Coloseum, Villa Borghese, the Piazza di Spagna, the Trevi Fountain, and the Capuchin Church of Santa Maria della Concezione whose macabre crypt had impressed the likes of Mark Twain and Marquis de Sade; these are just some of the landmarks William Murray points out on his walking tour of Rome. Having grown up in the city, Murray makes for an expert (and engaging) tour guide who captures Rome's sights, sounds, and flavors, while also revealing its mythologized history and folklore.

What the Critics Say

"Like a nice walk, Murray's work is leisurely yet not too long, inspiring daydreams of zooming around town on a Vespa in an espresso-induced state of ecstasy." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Fun listen before heading to Rome"

    I bought this in preparation for a trip to Rome but didn't have time to listen to it before or during my stay. I listened to the book shortly after I returned from Rome. It was still fun to listen to the author's thoughts on places I had recently visited but I wish I had listened to it before going to Rome. The book is short and very personal. Not a replacement for a good history or guidebook but a great addition to those sources.
