With over 250 appealing and enlightening visual images alongside accessible, concise descriptions that focus on precisely the most pertinent and meaningful information, Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide is a wonderfully useful—and enchanting—resource for travelers, architecture enthusiasts, historians, and all those with an interest in any aspect of the richly multi-faceted subject that is Roman architecture.


NEW HAVEN, CONN.- Imagine having the best expert— the most articulate, helpful, and well-versed—to personally guide you through the great ruins of Rome and the Roman Empire, highlighting their most fascinating and important features. Over many years, tens of thousands of individuals have discovered, online, in classrooms at Yale, and on trips to the actual sites, that Diana E. E. Kleiner is exactly that person. With her extraordinary wealth of knowledge, creativity, personal insights and anecdotes, and the passion that marks every truly great teacher, she has not only guided countless travelers but has graciously fielded and personally responded to the many requests for advice that she receives year-round. Diana Kleiner is indeed “the traveler’s best friend”—and now she has created an enhanced e-book that richly deserves that encomium as well.

With over 250 appealing and enlightening visual images alongside accessible, concise descriptions that focus on precisely the most pertinent and meaningful information, Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide is a wonderfully useful—and enchanting—resource for travelers, architecture enthusiasts, historians, and all those with an interest in any aspect of the richly multi-faceted subject that is Roman architecture.

At its most expansive, the Roman Empire stretched from the British Isles to Egypt; Rome was the ancient world’s greatest superpower. Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide takes us to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire, exploring not only Rome but also buildings preserved at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Ostia, Tivoli, North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, and North Africa—allowing readers to trace the growth and expansion of the Roman Empire chronologically through its cities.

Roman Architecture’s wealth of photographs and site plans of these intriguing structures are presented from the fresh perspective of an author who has journeyed to nearly all of the sites, revealing most of them through her own digital images. In addition, this interactive e-book makes learning about these monuments easier than ever, with handy maps and geolocation links that show you just where the monuments are and, if you’re traveling, how to get there. A fascinating introduction to some of history’s most compelling and influential architecture, Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide is an enthralling resource, whether one wishes to visit Rome in person or from afar.

From reviews posted by early users:
• "The numerous photographs and excellent text are like going on an Italian vacation.”

• “An excellent travel guide for Roman architecture." • “A must-have for Architecture and History lovers!”

• “The writing style and excellent pictures make it a joy to read.”
