Rome: Ancient Glory



Rick Steves’ Europe Travel Guide | Part one of three shows on the Eternal City, this episode resurrects the rubble and brings back to life the capital of the ancient world. Focusing on the grandeur of classical Rome, we’ll admire the groundbreaking architecture at the Colosseum and Pantheon, and the empire’s exquisite art at the Capitoline Museum.

    "Ancient Romans, who's taste for violence exceeded even modern Americans." Cheap shot at your own country, Rick. Sanctimonious twit.

    Rick, I wonder if you thank and pray for history, of those you speak of. So many stories. So many lives. So much unsaid. But by bringing out points of interest is a good way of bringing awareness.

    You'd better hurry up and see these beautiful places before they all turn into Mogadishu. Europe is being taken over at a frightening rate

    The pagan gods are so much alive, the Sofianic Germanic age is upon us! Rome should be rebuild to it's former pagan splender and the Vatican torn down!
