    Antonio & Dante's First Adventure
    Antonio & Dante are on their way looking for all things Italian. Their first adventure takes them to the Eternal City. With the clues they have left you will you be able to figure out where they are?

    The Arch of Constantine
    The arch itself references a dedication to the emperor Constantine the Great and his victory of the tyrant emperors Maxentius and Licinius.

    The Capitoline Hill or Campidoglio is the smallest of Rome's seven hills, but it was the religious and political center of the city since its foundation more than 2500 years ago.

    The Colosseum
    The Colosseum is considered an architectural and engineering wonder, and remains as a standing proof of both the grandeur and the cruelty of the Roman world.

    Forum of Trajan
    The last and most magnificent of the imperial fora, the Forum of Trajan (or later, Forum Ulpium, from Ulpius, Trajan's family name) was constructed under the direction of the architect Apollodorus, who sought to surpass all that had gone before.

    Rome is home to many beautiful fountains. Most notable are the Trevi fountain and the Fountain of the Four Rivers.

    Michelangelo's Pieta
    Did you know that this is the only work Michelangelo ever signed?

    It is one of the best-preserved of all Ancient Roman buildings. The Pantheon has been used as a Roman Catholic church and it was dedicated to "St. Mary and the Martyrs."

    The Pyramid of Cestius
    Located near the Porta San Paolo and the Protestant Cemetery is the Pyramid of Cestius, which is one of the best-preserved ancient buildings in Rome. The pyramid was built sometime between 18 and 12 BC, during the reign of Emperor Augustus, and was the tomb for Gaius Cestius a magistrate and member of one of the four great religious corporations in Rome.

    The Roman Pantheon
    This site is dedicated to understanding the beauty and longevity of construction by the Romans, especially their use of pozzolan based concrete, also known as Roman concrete.
