Blue Guide Rome by Annabel Barber


Dublin-based Guild member Annabel Barber is one of the co-authors of the Blue Guide Rome.

“The Blue Guides are an institution, in business since 1918. The first Blue Guide Rome came out in 1956 and it was a huge honour to co-author the most recent edition, the twelfth, published earlier this year. Crammed as ever with information on the sites and monuments of one of the greatest city-repositories of human civilization, it retains its traditional Blue Guide focus on history, art and architecture. Researching it was utter joy,” says Annabel
