The Pilgrim, who moves through the city to find sacred relics of Christianity in abandoned churches… to find his own Salvation.
The Merchant, who enters falling marble arches and galleries of ancient monuments transformed in warehouses and shops… simply to make money.
The Baron, the violent knight with armor, sword, spear, and shield, who rules entire districts of Rome from his Medieval fortress built inside the Colosseum or over an ancient Roman temple.
It seems like a fantasy movie, but it’s just history… in Rome!

A Rome I never knew!
A great tour or Rome in a period I knew little about. Starting in 500 AD. Maps, images and photos took us there. Our guide was high energy and well prepared and a great story- teller. Highly recommend this lens on Rome!
