    Review text
    This is one of a superb series of travel guides to ancient sites. Amanda Claridge is not only supremely knowledgeable but has produced a guide of remarkable clarity. After a brief historical overview and a welcome discussion of building materials, she walks us through the city explaining not only the layered jumble of remains at the major sites but those fragments of buildings and statuary that can be found in squares and on street corners, usually unlabelled and tantalizing. Maps, drawings and photos add to an exemplary text. Exploring Rome will be even better than before, and armchair readers will find themselves transported effortlessly to the Golden City. Review by Lindsey Davis, whose books include 'Two For the Lions' (Kirkus UK)
