Publisher's Summary

So if you choose this guide, you will never have a snack on the Spanish steps, and you will better understand the privilege of having the Pope as an uncle. Just listen to the sample track, and you will understand that quality, along with entertainment, is the key to this program, which was written by a local tour guide.Each track is independent from the others, so you can freely choose your itinerary according to your interests and the time you have at your disposal.

Good summary of the city's main points

Would you consider the audio edition of City Highlights Rome to be better than the print version?

Yes beacuse you can walk around the city while listening to the audio.

Which character – as performed by Brian Butler – was your favourite?

At times he did sound like one of those robotic speech machines

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes as the audio is quite short.

Any additional comments?

Whould be improved if they could go into a bit more detail on all the arears. As the tour was quite short.
