An old adage speaks of the grandeur that was Rome. That grandeur is captured in amazing, well-documented detail in this unusual volume, which takes the form of a travel guide written in AD 143, when the Roman Empire was at its height of size and prosperity. Included are the city's imposing public buildings, temples and other shrines, religious festivals, roads and aqueducts, shops, public games (including chariot races and gladiatorial combats), and side trips to important nearby sights.

Review:

"In the format and tone of today's travel guides, the present-tense text is engaging and friendly. The plentiful photographs, reproductions, diagrams, and maps interspersed throughout are mostly black and white. A serviceable addition...for students."
-- School Library Journal (April 2003) (School Library Journal 20030401)

"This is an enjoyable approach to history and definitely succeeds in transporting students to another place and time."
-- School Library Journal (April 2003) (School Library Journal 20030401)

"This series is written in the style of a tourist's guidebook, each chapter dealing with a particular topic of interest to a tourist. Modern distances, temperature units, and other measurements are used, though to make the facts easier for students to understand. A lot of information is packed into this slim book's 112 pages. In fact, nearly every page of the book has an illustration or a sidebar. Recommended."
-- Library Media Connection (March 2003) (Library Media Connection 20030301)
