Comprehensive Guide to Rome
This comprehensive guide to Rome, written by a team of experts, is well worth the money. You'll find everything you need to know about visiting the top sights, museums, churches, and hidden gems in the eternal city.
This app is essential for the first time visitor but also has enough information to appeal to those who have been to Rome before. I've been to Rome many times but still found a few new places I look forward to checking out on my next trip.
Rome dream of Italy app
Love this app. But lately seems to have a few glitches. It has been closing when I try to navigate between pages and it also will freeze so I can't do anything but close and reopen.
