Cradle of antiquity and hedonistic centre of la dolce vita, the Eternal City transgresses trends, styles and fashion and yet is an epicentre of European fashion and home to the most stylish people on the planet. "StyleCity Rome" peels away the layers of history to find quirky cafes, modish enotecas, mama-and-papa osterias and off-beat house-musuems to reveal the many facets of this deeply civilized city, selecting the best and most characterful places to provide a total city experience: where to sleep, eat, drink, shop, retreat, explore, or just hang out in stimulating surroundings. In its brilliant use of art, design and photography in portraying Romes contemporary vitality, and in its discernment in selecting the best trend-setting restaurants, groovy shops, stylish hotels, hot districts and neighbourhoods, "StyleCity Rome" will guarantee all travellers a vibrant urban experience.
