Affordable Rome Sightseeing EBook Review

I recently had the opportunity to review the eBook Affordable Rome Sightseeing: Five Best Kept Secrets of Italy’s Most Amazing City by Cath Andrews. In the opening paragraph, Andrews immediately grabs your attention with these lines, “So you want to see Rome, but you want to do it a little differently- without breaking the bank and without being grouped together with the millions of other tourists visiting one of the most beautiful cities in the world?” But like any place else you go on vacation it can be frustrating when you experience a different culture and a different way of life. That is where this book comes in. They not only show how to be your guide through the city, but also show you other things that tourists would never get to see. Why is that? Because Andrews was a tourist at one time but now lives in Rome.

In the first chapter the main focus is relaxation and it being free. Immediately you are sent to The Borghese Park where there is 148 acres to explore. There are fountains galor, places to sit and have a picnic, a water clock, tons of gardens and places for children to play. They also have ice cream stands, bikes, go karts and in the summer an old fashioned puppet theater.

Chapter 2 focuses on several places to eat with out breaking the bank. She tells of her three favorite places to eat in Rome that will not only fill your belly with awesome food but also doesn’t make your wallet lighter because you are not spending a fortune. Andrews also tells you where to go for the fabulous Italian food we all know as Pizza. She lets you know where to buy the most reasonable priced pizza without sacrificing the quality.

In the next chapter, Andrews even gives you sights to keep your kids active (that is if you brought them on this trip). Imagine your child’s surprise when you tell them they are going to gladiator school. This school is not just for kids, the whole family can attend. What a great photo op that would be.

In one of the chapters, the author views Rome through a keyhole and all I can say is that the pictures that were taken through the keyholes were amazing.

The last part of the book deals with being an actual tourist and seeing all the touristy things. But Andrews tells you which ones to make sure to see, when to go and what to wear. Tips are given to make sure you don’t go when there is a large crowd. I hate crowds so I thought those tips were awesome. She also gives tips as to where to buy passes, what sights to see, how to enter the sights which allows you to take your time visiting. Also gives you tips on what to bring with you i.e. water. The next particular tip I found awesome she tells whether it is better to see a sight on a rainy or a sunny day. Tell me what guide book does that for you?? There are also tips on how to dress to visit the sights. For example did you know that St. Peter’s Basilica has a dress code so no shorts or sleeveless tops allowed. That is definitely a helpful tip. She also talks about the superstitions that some Romans believe in. Like if you visit the Trevi Fountain “remember to throw a coin in to guarantee you’ll return to Rome. But to make sure you do it from your right hand over your left shoulder or it won’t work.” How specific is that???

So what are waiting for go Rome Sightseeing to find out more about this awesome book. It is must for anyone who is planning on visiting Rome or for those that can not afford to visit that can visit through their imagination.
