There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A cross between a travelogue, a history and segteti memoir. I also loved the use of architecture as a jumping-off point for several stories because in Rome, perhaps unlike anywhere else in the world, art and architecture are propaganda for religious and political agenda.

Along the way he discusses Caesar, Nero, Michelangelo, and several corrupt Popes.
