For information on Italy in general, visit www.italiantourism.com or www.initaly.com. The Turismo Roma website (www.turismoroma.it) is packed with information about events and places to visit in Rome. Another particularly useful site is www.romeguide.it, which has an English-language version. Particularly provocative, fascinating, and up-to-date are the monthly online issues of The American, a popular English-language magazine based in Rome (www.theamericanmag.com). "Magnificent" is the only word to describe this passionate writer's ode to the city's treasures of art and architecture, replete with hundreds of photos and little-known facts: www.romeartlover.it. The official website for many of Rome's most famous sights (www.060608.it.) is a good place for advance ticket sales and reservations. One of the richest site-specific resources is www.capitolium.org, for the Fori Imperiali; it has a large amount of historical and archaeological information. If you’re particularly curious about the history of food and where to get the best of it in Rome, check out food writer Katie Parla’s comprehensive blog at www.parlafood.com. And for negotiating the many bus lines threading Rome and its surrounding areas, check www.atac.roma.it and www.cotralspa.it.
