"O thou newcomer who seek’st Rome in Rome
And find’st in Rome no thing thou canst call Roman;
Arches worn old and palaces made common
Rome’s name alone within these walls keeps home." - Ezra Pound

Like this poem, many more have been written about the essence and beauty of Rome. And if you are looking to be inspired by the 'Eternal City', then step back into time and explore ancient poetry as it relates to Roman history on this online experience with an actor and poetry-lover.
Through the video, you will follow the footsteps of poets such as Ovid, Virgil, Horace and many more. From their beautiful poems on the city of Rome, you'll immerse yourself in the beautiful history of the city, through the eyes of its poets.

From your own home, you will visit the royal Palatine Hill, walk around one of the oldest entertainment venues, the Circus Maximus, and check out what the Colosseum is like. You will stop by the ancient government building of the Roman Forum, check out the central hub of Rome, Piazza Venezia, and conclude your tour at the place where Julius Caesar was murdered: Largo Argentina. So not only will you travel back in time, but you will also see the city, all from your own home.
