Book recommendations please re Italy/Rome...

Jump to last reply

I will be taking my 22-year-old nephew on his first trip outside the country. He is accompanying me to Italy. We will spend most of our time in Rome, but he has asked to go to Pompeii. I believe we will probably get in a couple days in Florence and a few days in Venice.

He says he is a big history buff (I'm afraid I don't know him as well as I should. He lives in another state and his father, my brother, passed away when my nephew was just 10).

I'm looking for recommendations on a few books I can send him that he can read between now and early March. Anything that will help him enjoy his stay more than just going.

Thanks, all!~!
