This well-written and clever book takes you back to Ancient Rome as a tourist.

Included in the book are wonderful quotes from Latin authors about daily life in ancient Rome and countless explanations of ancient Roman customs and practices. There are even a few walks that you can still take today. Adults who love history and young people who are students of Latin and the Classics will equally enjoy this book.
