Language: Marathi

First Published: 1st May 2009

Meena Prabhu is my one of my most favorite authors. No one writes travelogues better than her at least in Marathi. Exploring new nations through her eyes, through her words is as entertaining and exciting as traveling by myself if not better. What I like about her writing style most is when she travels she covers all the aspects of the nation. She explains and explores the nation culturally, historically, artistically.

This book is about her traveling around Italy. Her exploration of Italy is divided in 2 parts ‘Romerajya 1’ and ‘Romerajya 2’. Romerajya 1 covers the area from Amsterdam to Rome itself. Italy today is heart of Christianity and it has been a case for centuries now. Italy is very rich Culturally, Historically, and Artistically. So after reading this book I think everyone must visit Italy at least once in their life time. But before visiting Italy you should read this book, it will open up new dimensions of travelling for you.

It is a Must Read Book. If I have to rate this book I will give it 10 out of 10.
