Synopsis: Holy Rome
A Millennium Guide to the Christian Sights
Years of massive renovations have prepared Rome for the 26th Jubilee and the start of the third millenium. Today the city gleams more brilliantly than ever, displaying a fresh, bright face that conjures up the city of centuries gone by, when popes, cardinals, and powerful families were adding magnificent new works of art and architecture to the city's treasure of antiquity and its early Christian relics. Like no other guidebook before, FODOR'S HOLY ROME explores every aspect of the stunning legacy of Christendom -- and brings you close to the powerful soul of the city that has
drawn travelers and pilgrims since the dawn of the first millennium.
No other guidebook highlights so many sights important to Christianity. Nearly 500 are covered in all, from the Vatican museums to the many churches, cloisters, shrines, and relics of saints. Covering them all, district by district, this one-of-a-kind guidebook gives you all the tools to explore.
Clear overviews and complete descriptions help you understand what you see. You'll find moving anecdotes from the lives of the saints, tales of Jubilees through the centuries, biographical sketches of key artists working in Rome, inside stories about recent renovations, and thorough background information on every sight.
An exceptional city atlas from Italy's premier cartographers keep you on track. It's more up-to-date and more detailed than in any other guide, and all the churches and holy sights described in the texts are keyed to the maps.
Exclusive themed itineraries highlight key facets of the city. You'll walk in the footsteps of Peter and Paul, take in Christmas in Rome, and see subterranean Rome, angels and altars, relics and reliquaries, and outdoor shrines and pilgrimage routes.
Calenders from the Vatican and the Rome Agency for Jubilee Preparations give you dates and key information on masses, celebrations, exhibitions, concerts and other Jubilee events.
A wonderful souvenir as well as an essential companion. More than 230 gorgeous photographs depict Rome's landmarks fresh from their face-lift -- and document Rome as it looks today.
Review: If you're planning on making a millennium pilgrimage to Rome, you'll need the holy scoop--a guide specializing in the Christian monuments, tombs, martyrs, saints, catacombs, mausoleums, monasteries, churches, and basilicas, plus Rome's origins, its popes, and the Vatican. Fodor's Holy Rome explains everything you'll need to know about the origins and history of the Jubilee. It contains a chronology of Roman Jubilees (from the first in 1300, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and up to the Jubilee of Reconstruction in 1950 and the Jubilee on Television in 1975). The Christian Jubilee of Rome 2000, however, will be a bash such as has not been seen in a long time, and there's a full chapter devoted to it, with Main Jubilee Destinations--listed by basilicas, catacombs, way stations, and churches, and then plotted on a map of Rome--followed by a calendar of the Holy Year 2000, with events starting in December 1999 and running through January 2001. The text is instructive and engaging. The pictures are beautiful. The Rome Atlas in back (all 16 pages of it) is unbeatable. And the focused, thorough, well-organized information is irreplaceable. --Stephanie Gold
