ANCIENTS MONTH: We love Italian history. Especially ancient history. Journey to Rome with us this month. Learn what it was like to live in the capital of the world. If you had a time machine and went back to that time, you find a city that controlled 2/4 of the world’s population. Wow! Ok, we won’t ruin the rest. Enjoy….

Ancient Rome was at its apex from the second century BC through the second century AD. During the Pax Romana of the first and second centuries AD, Rome benefited from the expansion of its empire, with vast amounts of wealth and diverse cultural influences flooding into its borders. What was Ancient Rome like? It had a little bit of everything. The city of Rome was a bustling urban center full of commoners, animals, and politicians – all running into each other on crowded streets, in public buildings, and at any number of sporting events. Life in Ancient Rome was full of excitement, with plenty of opportunities for entertainment and spectacle contributing to the cosmopolitan atmosphere. #AncientRome #GoldenAgeRome #WeirdHistory
