"ROME - A photographic tour: 122 amazing photos by Alexandru Ciobanu takes the reader on a tour through Rome as the title suggests. It is filled with stunning photos of the city that has fascinated people for many centuries. The quality of the photos is fantastic, and I can see that the person who took them knows his job as a photographer. The photos capture the essence and magic of ancient Rome very well, but also show that the city has a vibrant energy to it." - Reader's Favorite

This advice also applies to what to see while you are there. In his book, Rome – A Photographic Tour, the author, Alexandru Ciobanu, take you on a “personally” guided tour of this capital city of Italy.
Using his skill as a professional photographer, Mr. Ciobanu has selected the best view possible for each of the sites he’s taking the reader to on this tour of Rome. The descriptions, with numbers directing you to the picture involved, cut to the chase without the flowery additions so prevalent on guided tours you pay for.
With both of us being retired, I’d so hope to do some traveling in Europe with my dear OH; but the events of the past few months this might not be able to become a reality. This book has to a large extend taken us there, without the sounds and smells of the city itself; which is why I’m giving this book 5 STARS.
I had originally won an e-book version of this book from the author through a giveaway on LibraryThing, but I couldn’t download the files he had provided. Luckily, this book had been offered as a FREE DOWNLOAD on Amazon, which the author had advised me to take.
The photos in this collection are pretty much uniformly excellent. They're certainly far better than the snapshots I took when in Rome in 2001.
I do have some niggling issues though, probably due to my years as marking student papers. Why does the text accompanying each photo sometimes go out of order. The photos are all numbered consecutively, but the text at one place goes 55, 54, 56, 57, 58, 59, 63, 60, 62, 64, 66, 65, 68, 70, 71, 69, 72, for example. Why not keep the text in the same order as the photos?
The photos also don't seem to be sorted in any particular order. They certainly don't seem to be by theme or geographically. Perhaps at it is a "photographic tour" they could be sorted more logically. A map showing where the subject of each photo is located would be also be a nice addition.
Finally, a history buff such as myself would have liked more detail/more information in the text describing each photo.
But enough complaining. Overall, even though some photos are fairly small, they do scale up reasonably well when you zoom into the photos in the ebook edition. The larger photos, especially the two page spreads, are very beautiful and detailed.
Not quite, but almost as good as going to Rome.
