Why do Romans do as they do?

So my husband and I just flew back from a vacation in Rome yesterday, where we had a wonderful time. Now it's four in the morning and I'm wide awake. So while I'm sitting here pondering the stinky laundry I must tackle later today, I'm wondering if some of you can answer some of our random questions about things we saw and experienced, stuff that wasn't addressed in the guide books. Here goes: [more inside]

When in Rome, where to buy cool stuff?

We're going to Rome for ten days this fall. Whoo! Anyway, I know there's other Rome threads on here for restaurant and hotel suggestions, but who has suggestions for other cool stuff, like markets/fabric and crafty-type stores, artisan shops, antique places, kitchen and food stores; basically, any place where I can buy cool stuff?

Books about Roman Empire

Like others I am watching HBO's Rome. Does anyone know of a good concise, non overtly academic history of this period? Secondly, I'm also looking for a similarly styled general overview of the empire. Thanks.

Milan, Florence, Rome hotel recommendations?

I'm travelling to Italy in late August and am looking for hotel recommendations for Milan, Florence, and Rome. I'm looking for not the most expensive, but not the least expensive. Maybe 3-4 stars? I'm also looking more for an "Italian" experience than a big chain hotel. I'd be happier in something that is smaller and older (if well kept) or more of a boutique-type place. I'll be travelling by train and won't have much more than 2 days per city, unfortunately, so a central location is important to me. If there are any Italians or Italy travellers who might be willing to advise me, I'd really appreciate it!

Give me your reccomendations on books about the Republic and Empire.

As a lay...very lay...student of Roman Republic and Empire, and anticipating the upcoming HBO/BBC series Rome with relish, I'm reading everything I can get my hands on about both Republic and Empire. Currently I'm reading an abridgement of The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire I just inherited. What next? [insert Latin for "more inside" here].

My wife and I are planning a 10-12 day trip to Italy in late Sept. and are looking for advice. We are torn between a guided tour-type trip where the majority is planned out for you or just getting tickets and hotel rooms and making the plans while we are there. Any advice or experience?
