H.V. Morton's evocative account of his days in 1950s Rome--the fabled era of La Dolce Vita--remains an indispensable guide to what makes the Eternal City eternal. In his characteristic anecdotal style, Morton leads the reader on a well-informed and delightful journey around the city, from the Fontana di Trevi and the Colosseum to the Vatican Gardens loud with exquisite birdsong. He also takes time to consider such eternal topics as the idiosyncrasies of Italian drivers as well as the ominous possibilities behind an unusual absence of pigeons in the Piazza di San Pietro. As "TourismWorld.com" commented recently: "H.V. Morton.. . .wrote of Rome with style, involvement, and passion. His book "In Search of Rome" is perhaps the definitive guide book on the Eternal City."
