A New Way to See Rome: Audio Tours

There’s nothing like having an animated and educated tour guide or historian to lead you through the wonders of Rome. I wrote about one in particular (Enrico Bruschini) in our sample issue. Yet, thanks to today’s technology those who don’t have the time or money to hire a private guide can take advantage of audio guides.

I recently tried Jane’s Smart Art Guides and liked them so much, I added her two Rome tours to the Dream of Italy online store. [By the way, I try or use everything we carry (have watched the entire Tuscany DVD set, used our Christmas cards myself last year) so you can be sure you are getting quality products.] What I like most about Jane’s audio tours is that they are customizable depending on how long you have to visit St. Peter’s, for example, and Jane gives historical context that you can listen to before you get to the site.

Jane has visited Rome many times and offered to share her strategies for “doing Rome” without having “Rome do you in” with DOI readers. Click here to read her tips…
