From the Publisher

The three walking or armchair tours of ancient Rome use emperors as the timeline to put Roman sights into a historical and chronological context. Quotations from then contemporary authors are utilized to describe the emperors, visited sights and their imperial patrons, so that ancient gossip from the tabloids of Suetonius or an opinion or observation from Virgil, Cicero, Horace, Pliny, the disciple Luke or even an emperor, may provide insights to the times, and put artifacts into their appropriate context. Dante, Goethe, Gibbon and Shakespeare share their judgments looking back through time. These unique tours attempt to lead the reader through the often confusing Rome which is strewn with artifacts from its 2600 year history. The 350 year period of 27BC to 327 AD is visited in 196 pages, with walking maps, photographs and timelines.
