About this title

Synopsis:

Unlocking the door to the hidden treasures of the imperial capital's multifaceted cultural history, Key to Rome is a tour book unlike any other. Author Frederick Vreeland, former U.S. senior diplomat in Rome, and his artist wife, Vanessa, guide visitors and armchair travelers through layers of time-from the ruins of antiquity to Renaissance palaces to the trendiest new shops and restaurants--exploring major sites and revealing insider secrets.
Written in a brisk, anecdotal style, this gorgeously illustrated handbook is packed with photographs, historical drawings, sidebars, foldout maps, and floor plans and has been completely updated from its original Italian edition. Organized into four sections--Ancient, Christian, Renaissance and Baroque, and Shopping and the Grand Tour--the guidebook's succinct descriptions of the sights are framed by historical timelines and punctuated by special "must-see" highlights. A comprehensive reference section at the back details day trips of interest, a guide to Italian food, the newest in specialty shops and boutiques, "Rome by Night" and "Rome for Kids," as well as transportation facts, hotel and restaurant suggestions, and much more.

About the Author:


Frederick Vreeland is a former U.S. ambassador, senior coauthor of RomeACCESS, and a contributing editor at Cond� Naste Traveler magazine. Vanessa Somers Vreeland is a widely exhibited British artist in glass and mosaics.
