“J.M. Pasquesi has fashioned a delightful guide to Rome that should please kids and parents alike. It strikes just the right balance between the history (excellent information and stories about the city’s past, its monuments and its celebrities), the topographical (great maps and pictures of the Roman sites and sights), and valuable insider information (where to eat and, above all, where to get the best gelato). And it offers some truly ingenious diversions for kids that will really help open their eyes to the magnificent wonders of the Eternal City.

“This book is a must for parents and children going to Rome, but really would be a great guide for anyone. I just wish I had one when I took my kids to Rome!”

Ms. Pasquesi’s portable epic enables parents to rattle off historical facts and colorful lore from many delightful sidebars, and empowers adults and older kids (who will enjoy its wit) to feel like they’ve really conquered this fabulous city. Best of all – her practical approach to sightseeing ensures days of fun and learning.”
