Editorial Reviews


"The fact that Walter Veltroni, the highly respected mayor of Rome until 2008 has written a foreword to this guidebook should inspire confidence in the Transitions Abroad reader eager to see the Rome behind the "Disneyland" itineraries, jammed with exhausted tourists that countless other guidebooks describe...The authors take the reader through a number of itineraries, carefully explained and annotated with excellent maps." --Transitions Abroad(

"This book is geared to the traveler who has already seen the big sights - the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, Vatican City and so on - and is ready to experience the less traveled, quirkier and definitely cheaper side of Rome. In other words, the Rome of ordinary people." --Chicago Tribune, June Sawyers

"...if you're planning on staying in Rome for a while, or if you're coming back, there's a good argument that ROME THE SECOND TIME is the second guidebook you should buy....If you're going to be in Rome for long enough, or regularly enough, to get past those first fevered days between the Colosseum and the Vatican, you may well want to dip into ROME THE SECOND TIME, and see what it has to offer. It's also supported by their Website, called, well, Rome The Second Time."

"Most guidebooks are outdated by the time they reach the stores, but this one is different. Beautifully written, with an enthusiasm for the Eternal City that warms every page, it takes readers far off the beaten path, into neighborhoods where tourists seldom tread."

"This book gives you a new insight into Rome. Itineraries and directions are well-written with interesting sidebars and stories about the sights. I enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to using it next time I'm in Rome.", Martha Bakerjian (
