"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(www.transitionsabroad.com)
"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." --www.romefile.com
"Most guidebooks are outdated by the time they reach the stores, but this one is different.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." --www.inromenow.com
"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." --About.com, Martha Bakerjian (goitaly.com)

The itineraries are detailed and easy to follow and took me to places I would never have found on my own. The sights selected introduce the
wayfarer to Rome's history, architecture, infrastructure, neighborhoods, politics and political movements, archaeology, ethnic and immigrant communities
high and popular art, night life, music scene, social classes, sports stadiums, schools and universities and much more. The commentaries describing the sights are lively and entertaining and explain succinctly the history and significance of what one is looking at. They tell us what to look for; what to see that we might miss otherwise.
Although I was not able to walk all 15 itineraries, the book guided me to an intense connection and bond with the city And reading it cover to cover on my return home helped me cope with feelings of Rome withdrawal and to anticipate and plan my second time. I highly recommend Rome the Second Time to first, second or tenth time visitors to Rome.
