More Ruins of Rome (Book II): From Vatican City to the Pantheon (Travel Photo Art #5) (Paperback)
If only two words could be used to describe Rome, no pair could be better than "creativity" and "culture." Even the most casual visitor is swept into the city's dizzying array of ancient sites, stunning artwork, and new surprises around every corner.
The Eternal City is the capital of Italy, and perhaps its most striking travel destination. The historic city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that charges every vacation with the energy of the Roman Empire founded on the Seven Hills.
An exploration of Europe cannot be complete until Rome's particular adventures have been experienced. The palaces and church cathedrals, Roman ruins, monuments, fountains and statues each offer a new and exciting journey. Visitors to Italy can expand their knowledge base with an artist's view of the ancient city of Rome.
The color photos in Ruins of Rome I & II were taken at Palazzo Senatorio, Saint Peter's Basilica and Vatican City, Via della Conciliazione, the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, San Paolo fuori le mura, Piazza del Popolo, various obelisks, and other sites. Step into this whirling place and become absorbed by its vibrant heart.
The softcover edition uses a single-page layout for an affordable price point. The hardcover edition utilizes a beautiful two-page spread with the photo on the righthand page and the title on the left. Either version makes a great gift.
In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, intense productions are your passport to new perspectives on famous places. Peer around corners and discover a unique way to interact with monuments and memorials you thought you knew.
This popular series includes titles that mix text with the pictures. Books like Notre Dame Cathedral: Our Lady of Paris, featuring photos taken months before the 2019 fire, become keepsakes associated with a specific site. Titles like Lidice Lives and Terezin and Theresienstadt are deeply meaningful for families touched by the Holocaust.
