Editorial Review
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).
