Cosimo, Inc., 2011/12/01 - 872 ページ
English aristocrat Augustus J.C. Hare filled his days with trips to the Continent, and returned home to share his journeys with eager readers-and the journals of his travels still enjoy a cultishly devoted readership today. His Walks in Rome was first published in 1871; this replica of the 15th edition from 1900, published here as two volumes in one, offers a virtual walking tour of: the Corso and its neighborhood, including the Piazza del Popolo, the Temple of Neptune, and the Trevi Fountain the Forums and the Coliseum, including the Temple of Mars, the House of the Vestals, and the Arch of Constantine the Baths of Diocletian and its neighborhood, including the Pretorian camp, Convent of the Pregatrici, and Villa Negroni St. Peter's and the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel, the Picture Gallery, the Library, and the Etruscan and Egyptian museums and much more... Charmingly enthusiastic and obsessively detailed, this guidebook continues to be invaluable for today's travelers, and for those fascinated by the ongoing metamorphosis of a modern metropolis. British travel writer AUGUSTUS JOHN CULBERT HARE (1834-1903) also wrote Epitaphs for Country Churchyards (1856), Walks in Rome (1871), and Wanderings in Spain (1873).
