Publisher's Summary

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.

Your tour starts in Peter's Square where we explain why this great church was built here, what you can see as you look at it and why the Popes over the ages have had a difficult relationship with Rome. We'll also give you the name of the only English Pope - so far!

After the crowds and noise of St Peters, walk with us down the calm, pretty Via Giulia and learn how it came to be built against the odds. We'll explain the macabre history of Santa Maria dell'Orazione e Morte and then lead you into the elegant Palazzo Farnese as we tell you about the great Farnese family - and some of the other families that have shaped Rome over the centuries.

Then, coming bang up to date, we'll show you some of the funkiest clothes shops in Rome - for humans and dogs - before we head off to the Ghetto. Rome might be long associated with the Catholic church, but the city's Jewish population also has a turbulent and moving history. We'll point out the best restaurants and cafes along the way.

Finally. we'll take you across the Tiber to Trastevere, where the churches, streets and the mood are all very different - but the ice cream is just as good, especially if you know where to look.

What the Critics Say

"Cool tours. We downloaded them when were in England visiting from the States and then took it with us. Via Giulia just beautiful - great escape from the crazy crowds of St Peters." (Chris and Carey, Connecticut, USA)

    "Poor pronunciation"

    The reader has a voice suited to MTV or radio 1 pop music, the cadence of her words are so poorly juxtaposed with the scenes she is describing. At one point she restarts her script and such little work was done on this guide that they couldn't even be bothered to edit it.

    So, too lazy to get the correct pronunciations (her Tras tev evrry is the best :)

    Too lazy to edit, really not value for money at all.
