ROME - A photographic tour: 122 amazing photos by Alexandru Ciobanu takes the reader on a tour through Rome as the title suggests. It is filled with stunning photos of the city that has fascinated people for many centuries. Some photos are spread over double pages, while other pages are the home to multiple photos and some descriptive text. The book combines photos with some basic information about the places where the photos were taken. Of course photos of the Colosseum, the Vatican, and the fortress of St Angelo are here. However, you will also find some photos of places that are a bit lower on a typical tourist's 'to visit' list.
I have been to Rome a few times, and enjoyed browsing this book by Alexandru Ciobanu as it reminded me of many of the places I have visited. The quality of the photos is fantastic, and I can see that the person who took them knows his job as a photographer. The photos capture the essence and magic of ancient Rome very well, but also show that the city has a vibrant energy to it. Some of the photos would also make fantastic posters that I would not mind having on my wall (if I had the space!). It is a great photo book for people who have never been to Rome and would like to get some inspiration about where to go - or simply look at places they might never be able to see. However, it is also a great book for people like me who have been to Rome and would like to reminiscence a bit.
