Ancient Rome : Monuments Past and Present Feb 14, 2008
This is a wonderful book. It really fleshes out the remains of Rome's ancient monuments
Rome monuments Dec 24, 2007
We're planning a trip to Rome and like to prepare by reading about places we'll be seeing. This gives a very good explanation of the Roman building remains in an interesting manner.
Rome than and now Apr 9, 2007
Great book love to see rome then and now makes history come alive
Time machine Mar 24, 2007
This book uses overlays to show what Ancient Rome looked like when everything was new and in good shape. Then, you can flip the overlay and see how things look now. I always wondered how things looked then and wished I had a time machine to go back to those days. This book is the second-best thing to a time machine. The artists have done a great job of reconstructing the famous buildings, forums and temples. The book is well worth the money and is less expensive from this site than buying it in Rome.
Good Book Nov 10, 2006
This is a great book but way too expensive. I could have bought the exact book in Rome for less than half the price from a vendor at the Colosseum but decided to wait until I got home.
