Oxford-educated historian Philip Matyszak has written knowledgably about the rise and fall of ancient Rome in critically acclaimed books like The Sons of Caesar. Now the acclaimed classical scholar gets a chance to strut his stuff in a more lighthearted manner with this amusing, tongue-in-cheek travel guide to the Eternal City, circa A.D. 200. Written in the breezy style of Rick Steves, this entertaining visitors' handbook provides the inside skinny on accommodations, food, sightseeing, shopping, entertainment, and local customs. (There's even a glossary of useful Latin phrases.) Parody, yes. But parody with a purpose. History has never gone down so smoothly!
