Description

Don’t want to feel like a barbarian at the gates? Now you can hold the Eternal City in your palm, with Lonely Planet’s Rome Cityguide on your iPhone. This really is the essential guide to one of the world’s great travel destinations: packed with independent views, reviews and local knowledge. From Trastevere to the Trevi Fountain, our two resident authors clocked up over 800 hours of research to bring you everything you need to know.

All we lacked to really bring this guide to life was the iPhone: need to know the best bars near the Piazza Navona? our comprehensive, interactive maps can pinpoint the places to be ; just arrived at Stazioni Termini, tired and hungry? sort the best hotels and restaurants by category and proximity, then click to ring or surf; stuck at the airport and want to get a sense of where you’re headed? our lavish images and in-depth history, culture, food and language chapters will set you right. And you can forget ruinous roaming connection costs: our Cityguides all work as stand-alone apps. Tutto Bene!
