Ancient Rome, Italy

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Ancient Rome was an Italic civilization that began on the Italian Peninsula as early as the 8th century BC. Located along the Mediterranean Sea and centered on the city of Rome, it expanded to become one of the largest empires in the ancient world with an estimated 50 to 90 million inhabitants (roughly 20% of the world's population) and covering 6.5 million square kilometers (2.5 million sq mi) during its height between the first and second centuries AD.In its approximately 12 centuries of existence, Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to a classical republic and then to an increasingly autocratic empire. Through conquest and assimilation, it came to dominate Southern and Western Europe, Asia Minor, North Africa, and parts of Northern and Eastern Europe. Rome was preponderant throughout the Mediterranean region and was one of the most powerful entities of the ancient world. It is often grouped into classical antiquity together with ancient Greece, and their similar cultures and societies are known as the Greco-Roman world.

  • For that I am not a fan of all these ancient ruins, but in Rome it is something! Got great pleasure considering all these centuries-old remains of a once great structures. Probably every time you can discover something new. For people with imagination, capable to provide for individual slices as it was originally a separate treat. Recommend this for a long study area from the Vittoriano to the Coliseum. There are perhaps look at it from a height, from Capitol Hill.
