Join an archaeologist, broadcasting live from Rome, as we trace the paths of Rome's greatest aqueducts and one of the strangest tombs in Rome and then trace along the Aurelanic walls – past S. Croce in Gerusalemme, to St. John Lateran. Our camera-led live virtual tour will weave through the eternal city’s historic neighborhoods as we journey back in time. An array of walls and aqueduct lines crisscross at Porta Maggiore, where our adventure begins.
This route will allow us to consider the grand architects that formed in the city, with scarce remains of medieval housing, and the massive display of wealth and beauty in the fountains and churches in a series of unforgettable squares. We'll also consider the built environment from subsequent periods of the city's rich history to observe what was reused, recycled, abandoned, or preserved through the centuries.
Led by an expert of Roman archaeology and history, Dr. Darius Arya, this immersive experience will transport viewers to the center of today's Rome where he's lived for over 20 years. Our live virtual walking tour considers the palimpsest of Rome's rich urban development. Participants will come away with an increased understanding of Rome's complex narrative that is ever-evolving amidst its endless layers.
This virtual tour is part of a series by Dr. Darius Arya. Each virtual tour can be joined independently and in any order.

Wanted to love this lecture since I have passed this area many times. But the video and sound was so poor - when he moves around then the video is pixellated and his words aren't totally clear. I was able to pull up wikipedia on the side screen and discern the names and locales he spoke about, so I wasn't totally lost. And disappointed that we only got a furtive glance inside one church and did not enter the other. Would have been helpful to maybe put up a slide with the day's agenda or mini-map of where we were in Rome in relationship to other monuments mentioned so we could have "context".
