So you're looking for a Rome guide book, perhaps you'd like to try a few pages in your back pocket or to download your perfect ancient Rome guide for free? or alternatively just store one of the more popular Rome guidebooks shown below into your luggage?
Getting the right Rome guide is no easy thing: most visitors end up surprised at the huge amount of things to see in the city and while it might sound cliché to say so: a few days are not enough, but you will only understand what I mean when you actually get to the city and experience that overwhelming sensation of "too much to see - too little time"!
The beauty of Rome is it's sense of discovery which lies round every single corner of the city so that even though you might blinker yourself to the "major sites" it's actually impossible to do so successfully. There is not a single Rome guide out there that can cover all aspects, even superficially without becoming a serious wedge of paper. So this is where we suggest you take a plan B approach (and it's free, lightweight and easily stored).
So, we thought we'd write up a free Rome guide which you can download, the beauty is you can take the bits that interest you and put them in your back pocket. We suggest that a great piece to take instead of a full guide to Rome is the timeline of Roman history because, like a crib-sheet at school it allows you to easily short-cut what you're seeing and where to place it in history. Just a few sheets of A4 will do more for you than any bluffer's guide to Rome:
Or you can take an even more DIY approach by going to specific sections from our general Rome page.
Try a couple of the 1 pagers (also for your back pocket):

|Rick Steve's guide to Rome. Recently gained a great deal of popularity and overtook Frommers. A matter of taste. Approximate price: $13||The popular "Frommers" guide. Hardly requires introduction. Approximate price $10. Probably thanks to the volumes they manage to sell.||Less known and more intellectual. Nice to have a different perspective and focus on what made the city great. Approximate Price: $15.|
