Travel Book: Rome – by Robert Hughes
When I visited Rome I was fascinated by the Coliseum. It was at once impressive and unbelievable. The architecture amazed me and it was my favorite of the places I visited. It also troubled me that people and animals were once killed for sport in that majestic space. I plan to read more on the complexities of Roman culture and this book from the Smithsonian is where I’ll begin. Also looks like a great gift for those well-traveled or yearning to travel types on your Christmas gift list.
