Good, but If you buy used, verify that you are really getting the 2017 edition--same ISBN for all editions

3.0 out of 5.0 by mcmarya on January 14, 2018
These Mapguides are great and very useful to bring along on your travels--very compact with fold out maps that you can easily consult as you see the sights. Had I actually received the 2017 edition I would have given it 5 stars. I took off 2 stars because I ordered a used copy on this page--2017 edition--but received the 2007 edition. This is not really the bookseller's fault because the ISBN is the same for both editions, published 10 years apart. This is misleading on the part of Knopf and a violation of ISBN rules. I did not get what I was expecting but the seller, based on the ISBN, sent me what they thought I had ordered. There is no way to make either of us "whole." So, if you decide to purchase a used copy, verify with the seller, before ordering, what you are getting. Knopf Mapguides: Rome: The City in Section-by-Section MapsI have attached photos of the front and back of the book I received.
This is a TERRIFIC little pocket guide

5.0 out of 5.0 by FrogLady on November 25, 2014
This is a TERRIFIC little pocket guide, once you've decided what you want to see. There are brief lists of the 'top ten' sights, and information on lodging and transportation, including a subway map. Where this excels is with the maps. For each of six major areas of the city, you open the guide to descriptions of the restaurants, bars, and shopping in the area. The pages feel very thick, almost like you're reading a young child's cardboard book. But like magic, the pages unfold UP, not from side to side, so you're looking at a double-page map that takes up roughly 3/4 of the page, with the bottom section highlighting the tourist attractions (museums, churches, palaces, theaters, piazzas) in the area -- brief descriptions, addresses, hours, phone numbers, and color photographs. The index lists several hundred sites you may want to visit, and references them back to the appropriate map. They have been incredibly efficient in cramming so much information into such a compact design. Very well done!
My favorite guides!

What I love about these guides is that you can open up a small map of a section of the city and not have a cumbersome huge map to deal with. All the sights, details, restaurant suggestions, right there for the area in which you are wandering around
Maps not easy to read/use

2.0 out of 5.0 by Emma Antunes on March 16, 2019
We brought this map book on our recent trip to Rome, but didn’t end Up using it. The maps were not easy to read; we left the book at our apartment when we checked out. Maybe someone else would be able to decipher it more easily than we did.
Sweet souvenir and awesome for planning your trip

I can't get enough of the Knopf books. They're great for planning because they're sorted by neighborhood. So you can mark your hotel on the pages and then map nearby restaurants and sites. I usually start with Google maps but then organize everything in the book. They're also a sweet souvenir to keep in a stack with the other Knopf books from other trips.
Really easy to use and great maps. Some very nice restaurant recommendations.

5.0 out of 5.0 by LongPlay on October 6, 2014
Really easy to use and great maps. We went to some of the recommended restaurant locations that are a bit hidden. WOW ..... some terrific recommendations. Pizza - Da Baffetto (really, it gets busy quickly). Trastevere - Da Enzo (Maybe the best carbonara I have ever had). This place is a little hard to find. And it was full by the time we got there. However, they set up a little table inside. A bit of a tight fit, but we really enjoyed the evening because of the ambiance and great food. By the way, the pistachio gelato is THE best I have ever had anywhere.
Great idea for a map and guide combined into one

5.0 out of 5.0 by 124wave on November 25, 2012
We bought the Venice version and liked that one so when we went to Rome, we purchased this guide. There is just enough background on Rome's public transit system, with routes, as well as information on the airport and other practical background. The bulk of guide consists of foldout maps with the city divided into several sections. Each map has an associated notes on museums, monuments, and other destinations found in that area, each of which can be located by the letter-number section. The next page highlights shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes in the area. This approach breaks up the city into more manageable bites. The foldout maps are easier to open and close so one can spend less time looking like a lost tourist. And when in Rome, try to visit Ostia Antica; it's only a 30-minute ride from Rome.
Great design & detail.

Sturdy Rome street guide. Paperback size, but made with card stock paper. Foldout maps by city section. Plenty of descriptive detail & pictures with each city section map. Carry it with you on your own personalized tour!
