    In some ways Rome has changed beyond recognition since 1871 the year in which Hare published Walks in Rome and in other ways it hasn't changed at all. And, for this reader, one of the chief joys of the book is to follow in the writer's footsteps to see what has changed and what has remained the same.In 1871 Rome became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy (at the time no more than a decade old) and over the next fifty years its population trebled from 200,000 to over 600,000 (today it is 2.7 million). This triggered a building boom which destroyed much of what Hare had written about. The extensive green spaces both inside and outside the city quickly disappeared. For instance, more than a century has passed since he was able to write the following: "Only the northern side of the Esquiline is inhabited at all; the southern, and by far the larger portion, is clothed with vineyards and gardens, sprinkled over with titanic masses of ruin. On most parts of the hill, one might imagine oneself far away in the country."Augustus John Cuthbert Hare was very much a man of his age and, like his fellow Victorians, had little time for the heroes of the Baroque, such as Bernini, Borromini and Caravaggio. He actually visits Santa Maria del Popolo without mentioning Caravaggio's two paintings in the Cerasi Chapel, although he does refer to its altarpiece by Caracci!The book is all-encompassing and insanely detailed; Hare goes everywhere and sees seemingly everything. I particularly enjoyed the passing references to Catholic religious practises of which Hare, as a good Protestant, is politely but distinctly disdainful.Unfortunately, this edition for Kindle is without illustrations, which is the only reason why I withhold a star.
