This superb guide at last brings the work of Filippo Coarelli, one of the most widely published and best-known scholars of Roman archaeology and art, to an English-language audience. Conveniently organized by walking tours and illustrated throughout with clear maps, drawings, and plans, Rome and Environs covers all of the city's ancient sites. Moreover, unlike most other guides, it includes the major monuments in a large area outside Rome proper but within easy reach, such as those of Ostia, Tivoli, and Palestrina, and the many points of interest along the ancient Roman roads. An essential resource for tourists seeking a deeper understanding of Rome's classical remains, it is also the ideal book for students and scholars approaching the ancient history of one of the world's most fascinating cities. The guide also features chapters on the city walls and aqueducts, an appendix on building materials and techniques, and a general bibliography.
