Thanks to inspiration from Google, viewers can now enjoy exploring Ancient Rome by walking through its wall, visiting the Colosseum, and virtually vieweing famous buildings of the wonderful city as if they were in 320 AD.

In collaboration with the "Rome Reborn" project and "Past Perfect Productions", Google was able to design and recreate every building and feature it in its original position using historical records. Eventually these tours will be used to guide students, historians as well as curious individuals.

Being enriched with pop-up "information bubbles," you can now learn about more than 250 buildings of the ancient city. Not only that, the information is available in several languages.
