Description


This is an 1882 Thomas Nelson city map or plan of Rome, Italy, illustrating ancient monuments. The map depicts the city from the Vatican to the Aurelian Wall and from the Villa Borghese and the Piazza del Popolo to the Porta San Sebastiano in the Aurelian Wall along the Appian Way, one of the earliest and strategically most important Roman roads. Incredibly detailed, 175 different locations throughout the city are numerically identified and correspond with an index situated along the left border. Each of these locations is colored red, allowing for easy identification. Numerous other locations throughout the city are labeled, including the Palatine Hill, Circus Maximus, the Colosseum, and the Roman Forum. Myriad streets are also labeled, along with piazzas, parks, and villas. The Tiber River, colored blue, flows through the city.

This map was created by Thomas Nelson and published in 1882.
