Description

The author of "This is London" now takes us on a truly memorable Roman holiday.  With his fresh, bright and gay pictures he shows us the old Rome and the new—fountains playing under a bright blue sky, the Roman Forum, the Spanish Steps, the old Appian way, and the most famous church in the world—St. Peter's.

We see oranges and lemons ripening in the courtyards and palm trees growing on rooftops.  We see statues and motorcycles and happy, lively people everywhere.

For all those who ever tossed a coin into the Fontana di Trevi, and for those who haven't, This is Rome!
