Ottavia e i Gatti di Roma
An adventurous story of two cats who call the ancient monuments of Rome their home. Follow Octavia and Julius in their tour of the best-loved sights of the Eternal City, with stops at the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum, and the famed Mouth of Truth.
Discover more about Rome and the sights mentioned in the story in the informative section at the end of the book. Use the location map to plan your own walking tour of Rome to see all the sights visited by the two cats and engage young children with a treasure hunt in the heart of Rome.
The text in Italian with English translation on every page will help Italian language students learn new words and practice their reading skills.
Those who love animals will enjoy this entertaining little adventure where two kittens are the bold protagonists.
Parents and educators seeking an entertaining way to introduce the subjects of travel, history, archaeology, and geography can use the book as a great starting point for further research. Travelers with children can use the book as an introduction to the sights of Rome and as a simplified guide to explain the city to little ones. The map at the end of the book visually explains the route followed by the two cats in the story and can be used for a walking tour of the city of Rome.
