You know the saying: when in Rome, do as the Romans do. Tour operator Citalia takes the adage to a whole new level: they’ve put together a detailed interactive map that lists out some of the most significant landmarks from parts of Ancient Rome to provide travellers with a handy companion and guide.

The interactive map —viewed here — lists out some of Ancient Rome’s most recognisable landmarks, but also includes some lesser known sites, like the ruins of Alba Fucens, which was a prosperous city during the Imperial Age, and is widely considered to be an archaeological jewel.

There are a wealth of lesser known landmarks on the map for you to discover

It also marks out the path of Ancient Roman roads and compares them to their modern day counterparts, making for a great way to plan a road trip through Italy.

Aside from naming the locations, the site also provides a wealth of useful information, including opening times as well as average ticket costs. Pictures and 360-degree views of each attraction are also available — not that travellers will have any difficulty spotting these magnificent landmarks from afar.

The map makes planning for a road trip seamless and fun

The map is the perfect accompaniment to any aspiring traveller to Italy: whether you’re planning to head to the country soon, or just looking for some inspiration, the site provides a fun and comprehensive way to see some of the gems of Ancient Rome. ◼
