Product Overview

In The Sights of Rome, Vincent Drago takes you on a fascinating visit to some of the most interesting sites in the Eternal City, including some of Rome's famous monuments. But you will also meet little-known places such as two fifteenth-century courtyards tucked away in a modern hospital, and an enormous stairway dedicated to a young drummer boy. Read the behind-the-scenes tale of the building of the Fountain of the Four Rivers and the Dome of St. Peter's Basilica. How did Borromini pay tribute to Urban VIII when he built the church of Sant'Ivo? What became of the original doors of the Roman Senate House? What connection is there between Pope Gregory XIII and Julius Caesar? What is the meaning of the Latin inscription on the tomb of Raphael in the Pantheon? All of this and more await you in the pages of The Sights of Rome.
