Walk the charming streets of the Eternal City with author of the bestselling travel memoir:
The Delights, Dramas, & Daily Diversions of Life in the Eternal
you like to see Rome the way the Romans see it? Go to
the places and stroll along the streets and alleys that
reveal the charm of the city? Eat the characteristic local
cuisine in a neighborhood trattoria? And hear interesting
current and historical tidbits that make Rome come alive
as you take it all in? Then treat yourself to AS THE ROMANS
DO -- unique accompanied tours with author, host, and
acclaimed speaker Alan Epstein, Ph.D. In one day, two
or more, you will experience three thousand years of history
-- from the Ancient through the Medieval, and on to the
Renaissance and the Baroque -- sprinkled with lively impressions
about the fashionable, alluring Romans of today.
The many layers
of Roman life come alive as you move from one fascinating
spectacle to another. You will feel part of a culture that
is so old that its origins begin in legend, while you treat
yourself to the many pleasures of the incomparable Eternal
City. Alan's latest book, AS THE ROMANS DO: The Delights,
Dramas, and Daily Diversions of Life in the Eternal City (William
Morrow) takes you into the heart and soul of the city, but
you can experience the vibrancy firsthand with the author
himself. If you are planning a trip to Italy, take advantage
of the knowledge, humor, and insider's view of a writer and
host who lives in Rome, and has had a twenty-five year love
affair with Italy. Contact
Alan Epstein with your Italy plans and
to find out his availability to host you.
Note from the Author
noticed that when I take people around Rome and surrounding
areas they usually say that they are seeing the city
and Italy the way someone living here would see it,
that through my ability to translate what is happening
into a language they can understand, my passionate feeling
about the beauty of Italy is transmitted directly to
them. Every one of the myriad people who have experienced
Rome through my eyes has said the same thing, the most
approving statement they could make -- "I can't wait
to come back."
Read what customers are saying about Alan's Tours
we can't thank you enough. We've done London and Paris
on our own (pretty well, I must say) but this was the
best. From breakfast at a local bar to the monuments
to the behind the scenes nooks and crannies we were
captivated by your knowledge and enthusiasm. My wife
and I, our daughter and her friend were spellbound.
You took us down small alleys and into courtyards filled
with ancient statuary that we would never have found.
We saw sites the bus tours miss and the tour guide books
don't even mention. To go into so many churches and
monuments and still keep the girl's attention is pretty
amazing. You did it with your understanding of the art,
architecture, politics of the time, and intrigue between
the Popes and the artists that created Rome. Our time
with you changed our future travel plans for the better.
When you said you knew someone to show us Pompeii, you
didn't say Judith was the best on the planet. How we
envy you all. To talk money, your fees, a little daunting
at first glance, were the best travel investment we
ever made. You made every minute count three times over.
We hope to see you again. On our trip home we decided
to retire to Italy. Really!"
