ItalyGuides.It - "Rome Travel Guide" enables you to feel the real Rome through your iPhone. It feels just like you are talking a walk through every important detail of its tremendous history.
This is not just an ordinary travel guide - this is more of a mysterious and fascinating trip: a voyage across more than 20 centuries of creativity through which art and history intertwine, telling the story of what human ingenuity has created through the ages.
Through the use of technology and amazing audio-visual content Rome Guide will take you on an impressive virtual tour through the Colosseum events, gladiator fights and the masterpieces of Michelangelo that will live in your iPhone and will tell you what Rome was like at the height of its splendour.
Explore Rome attractions, read history, listen audio walk-throughs and narration by a star voice over actor.
ItalyGuides.it reinvented audio-guides, giving them the feel of "Cinema" instead of the academism of traditional ones, with movie-style music, narration by American voice actor Gregory Snegoff, images and video, dramatically enhancing the storytelling process.
Beautiful maps each featuring several POIs with audio tracks that will let you discover the many not-to-be-missed sites of Rome as well as legends of the city.
Each Point of Interest has GPS coordinates, so you can figure out which POIs are closest to you or how you can reach them by sending the request to your phone navigator (Apple Maps).

Ratings and Reviews
Not as informative or interactive as expected
Although quite pretty i was expecting something much more interactive for the high price. The worst part is that you can't zoom out on the map so it is difficult to see where something is if you are not familiar with the area. I also expected more pictures of an area and the history to be more in-depth...again I expected much more for the price. It is basically a short summary that I could have read on wikipedia. After using it this weekend, I consider my purchase a waste of money. I should have done what the other reviewer recommended and just listened to them from their website.
We just returned from rome and used this app all over the city - we loved being able to skip the lines for audio guides in several places and just use this app! Highly recommended. Of course it works great in airplane mode and I bought headphone splitters so my husband and I could each use our own headphones.
Trying to make sense of documentaries and tangling with confusing maps made it hard to plan.
Particularly for a first timer like me, the audio and pictures helped me understand the significance of buildings in a full and easily understandable way.
I also enjoyed the artsy map which makes finding things a lot easier than many other apps I've tried - especially since this app has the option to show only attractions and zooms into specific areas.
If get it again if I could -without a doubt!
