Books you would recommend, in preparation for visiting Italy.

Hi All

I love reading the Fodor's forums, for all the wonderful advice, but also for all the inside tips which make a trip so memorable.

I am traveling to Italy for the first time in March, and would love to have your advice on books to read before I go and during my trip. We will be visiting Rome, Florence, Venice and Pompeii. I really enjoy interestingly written non-fiction and historical fiction. I know I've seen Ross King recommended as an author about Italy, but I was wondering if there were any other books that you would recommend.

I am also combining this trip with a visit to Cairo, so if you have recommendations for that too, they would be appreciated.

I look forward to the responses. And hopefully this thread will bring someone the other suggestions together into one thread for future readers.
