A gem for the tourist and armchair traveler alike, by the incomparable H. V. Morton. "The master of the genre. " --Jan Morris . H. V. Morton's evocative account of his days in 1950s Romethe fabled era of La Dolce Vitaremains an indispensable guide to what makes the Eternal City eternal. In his characteristic anecdotal style, Morton leads the reader on a well-informed and delightful journey around the city, from the Fontana di Trevi and the Colosseum to the Vatican Gardens loud with exquisite birdsong. He also takes time to consider such eternal topics as the idiosyncrasies of Italian drivers as well as the ominous possibilities behind an unusual absence of pigeons in the Piazza di San Pietro. As TourismWorld. com commented recently: "H. V. Morton...wrote of Rome with style, involvement, and passion. His book In Search of Rome is perhaps the definitive guide book on the Eternal City. "
