A Catholic's guide to Rome

£9.99

Product description

Internationally recognised expert and veteran of 50 trips to Rome, Frank Korn presents an insider's guide to the city. He describes not only the familiar churches, basilicas, and historic places, but also takes travellers on fascinating detours down back alleys to little-known, though very important sites. For both the public and the private Rome, he reveals the legends and traditions associated with each.There's no better time than now to visit Rome. With a warm and engaging style, the author explains Jubilee Year background and ceremonies and offers Jubilee travellers meaningful alternatives to the typical sites with their expected three-times-heavier crowds. He also lists which church offers Mass in which language.This guide is not only for Catholics but also helps travellers of other faiths appreciate a culture not their own. The author's storytelling style and invaluable facts, and the book's photos, maps, and index, make this a perfect choice for tourists and pilgrims, armchair travellers, priests and religious. It also offers "insider's info" that every travel agent and travel store will want to pass on to their customers.
