Reviews

"Perrottet is a nearly unflappable traveler and a terrifically funny writer; this history-cum-travelogue is as enjoyable as it is informative and twice as quirky." --The Boston Globe

"An appealing...mix of the zany and the arcane, juggling an energetic account of ancient Roman travel habits with a witty record of [the author's] own modern journey." --The New York Times

"Required reading...a charming popular history of ancient Roman sight-seeing." --Forbes FYI

"A splendid trip...a whimsical trek through classical history, famous sites and arcane trivia...provides a rich cache of information about ancient Roman life." --The Washington Post
