"Art directors will find these books invaluable, and travelers will see what [these regions] were really like."
Connie Martinson Talks Books


This book explores Ancient Rome with an eye toward contrasting what it was and how it now appears, including the Colosseum, the symbol of "The Eternal City," and twenty-four other significant ancient landmarks such as the Roman Forum, Circus Maximus, the Pantheon, and Appian Way. Important monuments and districts are presented with overlays that clearly depict how these notable ancient sites look today and how they likely appeared when they were first built, making these titles excellent resources for travelers, students, and anyone interested in the fascinating history of Rome.

Published by Vision s.r.l., Rome, and distributed in North America by the J. Paul Getty Museum.
