Ancient Roma, video simulation


Rome, the Eternal City. The home where ancient Romans believed that no matter the empires which rose or fell, Roma would go on forever.  It was said,  “All roads lead to Rome.” Today it is still a vibrant city  and leading tourist destination in world.

We have been blessed to travel extensively due to my husband’s profession,  We have been to Rome with students for semester stays similar to the Indian Program where they studied and traveled.  I have gone three semesters, and our children, when they were younger, went twice. David has gone so many times, I have lost count.

Often people will ask what places I enjoyed most etc.  I always say if you have only one trip in your lifetime, go to Italy and of course Rome. The history, architecture, art, food, wine , and strong culture are, as a whole, the best I have seen. The food is made with  such fresh , simple ingredients and so elegantly prepared. One small surprise, the Italians keep the best wine for themselves, and export the other!   You are in a living museum all the time and of course there is St. Peter’s Cathedral, the largest church in the world and  plan an all day visit to the Vatican Museum.

Of course, ancient Rome is in ruins and it is difficult for non- spatial  people to imagine        how all the ruins fit together.  This video simulation helps answer that question.  It was a project between Khan Academy and Rome Reborn.

For all who love the Eternal City or would love to see it  !
