Following on from the No Bullshit Guides to Venice and Florence, The Dennis Fish No Bullshit Guide to Rome takes us on an irreverent, witty and original four day tour to the heart of the Eternal City where we sample the best of what she has to offer. Dodging dog excrement, discarded litter, broken glass, hawkers and persistent 'tour guides' we were introduced to Griffins and Ostriches at the Colosseum, suckling siblings at the Capitoline Museum, soaring arches at the Roman Forum and screaming attendants inside the Sistine Chapel. With not a single minute wasted along the way, we go in search of macabre holy relics and gigantic confessional boxes and Caravaggio paintings and we count how many arrows can be found in the torso of a single martyred saint. And we do it all in style as we sample the best value restaurants and the most stunning sights. This is Rome as you have never experienced her before: completely unmasked and described both honestly and passionately, just as she was encountered. Laced with sardonic humour, obscure information and helpful tips, this book will not only save you money it will put a great big smile on your face in the process. Make no mistake, if this is your maiden visit, or if you are a wily seasoned traveller, this is probably the only companion you will ever need when planning a trip to Rome.
