Review: Northern Lazio, An Unknown Italy


Northern Lazio, An Unknown Italy
Northern Lazio, An Unknown Italy by Wayland Kennet

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



This sadly hard to find book is a must have if you are visiting the area. That rare type of regional guide that combines interest in the ancient and later historical aspects of a place with incisive wit. Thus, of Isola Farnese: "Not an island, and only briefly Farnese" (p.170).
