5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know! 27 Mar 2000
By Renee J. Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Ancient Rome: Monuments Past and Present is a very interesting book. It is very useful in visually learning about the monuments of Rome such as: the Colosseum, the individual buildings in the Forum, the Circus Maximus, Hadrian's castle, and other ancient ruins. The pictures and models are very useful in comparing and contrasting the present to the past. However, this book is not ideal for finding extremely in-depth information on each ruin, only the general is covered. I would definately recommend this book for someone visiting Rome or a curious intellectual striving for more knowledge in a fun way.

5.0 out of 5 stars best little book on rome 30 Mar 2001
By "doelkers" - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased a pocket size copy of this book in Rome on holiday It was great help to understand what we were looking at and we could see how it did look in the past. When we got home it was great helping us understanding and labeling our own pictures. I even included past pictures next to the ones I had taken to complete my own album. It is great when watching our videos and people ask what different buildings are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time machine 24 Mar 2007
By William J. Haslem - Published on Amazon.com
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 Amazon than buying it in Rome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 10 Nov 2006
By Traveler - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Any one going to Rome should purchase this book. Very cleaver! Overlays fill in destroyed parts of monuments to see what they used to like like.
