This guide brings the work of Filippo Coarelli, one of the most widely published and best-known scholars of Roman archeology and art, to a wide, English-language audience. Organized by walking tours and illustrated throughout with maps, drawings, and plans, the book covers all of the city's ancient sites, including the major monuments in a large area outside Rome proper but within easy reach, such as Ostia Antica, Palestrina, Tivoli, and the many areas of interest along the ancient Roman roads. Two separate chapters discuss important clusters of sites—one on the area surrounding Circus Maximus and the other in the vicinity of the Trastevere, including the Aventine and the Vatican. Additional chapters cover the city walls and the aqueducts, and the book features maps, drawings, and diagrams; an appendix on building materials and techniques; and an extensive bibliography.
