"We have long needed what no one before Claridge has provided: a synthesis, balanced and user-friendly, of all [the] recent scholarship, one that sets Roman monuments in their proper urban and historical contexts, and accurately describes what is currently known or thought about them. . . . [T]ravellers . . .will welcome a synthesis so balanced, intelligent and well informed, and will find Amanda Claridge a fine companion on their archaeological walks in Rome."--Times Literary Supplement
"Claridge's book will appeal to a range of readers--from armchair archaelogists to serious visitors and students of Rome's archaeology.... Recommended."--CHOICE

But what absolutely astounds me about this edition is the cover. Why on Earth has the oculus of the Pantheon--one of Rome's most iconic buildings--been edited out!? Not only have the designers/editors/whoever erased one of the most distinctive aspects of the Pantheon itself, but they will have befuddled a new generation of budding architectural historians.
I used before a trip to check out sites.
I copied pages for the sites I was visiting along with sections from:
Use with The Pilgrim's Guide to Rome's Principal Churches: Illustrated Guided Tours of Fifty-one of the Most Important Churches of Rome.
I then printed off Google Maps images of site.
I added travel info.
Created a series of site packs.
Never got lost and knew exactly what I was seeing.
