I am happy and excited to announce to family and friends the publication of a companion volume to The Sights of Rome.  The new book has a title and subtitle similar to the first:

Rome:  Sights and Insights

The Eternal City Reveals its Secrets and Mysteries


This new volume is a natural follow-up to The Sights of Rome and it follows the same format, including the feature of the Curiosities, so popular with many readers.

The new book is longer than the first one (253 pages compared to 178), and it has  several more photos (219 compared to 118).  The price, however, remains the same. 


I am happy to report that I will be traveling to the U.S. in late October – early November at which time I have three book signing sessions scheduled at local bookstores.  Here are the dates and places of the signings, so if you are in the area, please stop by, at least to say "Ciao"!
