Description - Rome by Sofia Pescarin

Brimming with hundreds of full-color photographs, this guidebook steers travelers through the monuments of ancient Rome, bringing history and its protagonists to life. Accompanying the insightful text, aerial views and close-ups provide an opportunity to examine the numerous archaeological treasures of Rome. Organized into four chapters that divide the city into sectors, this information-packed book explores celebrated sites such as the Coliseum and the Pantheon as well as lesser-known but hugely significant sites. From the Theater of Marcellus, begun by Caesar and opened by Augustus in 13 BC to the Caracalla Baths-the best surviving example of a thermal facility from the imperial age (work started in AD 212)-to the ornate Arch of Constantine (built in AD 315), "Rome" takes readers on a memorable tour through ancient history. Throughout the book, maps and three-dimensional graphic reconstructions help round out our understanding of what was once the "capital of the world."
