Join an archeologist, broadcasting live from Rome, as we explore the principal sites in the heart of the ancient city: the Capitoline Hill, the Roman Forum, and the Imperial Fora. The video-camera-led virtual tour will weave and wind its way through Rome’s ancient heart creating opportunities for reflection, dialogue, and an immersive visual experience.

Our live virtual tour will depart from the base of the Capitoline Hill, Ancient Rome’s sacred acropolis with the Temples of Juno and Jupiter Optimus Maximus overlooking the Roman Forum. We’ll ascend the cordonata capitolina into Michelangelo's impressive piazza del Campidoglio, one of the city’s most important squares with its ancient remains and retrofitted buildings. Here we’ll discuss how the area was transformed over the centuries, including the 20th-century addition of the imposing monument to Victor Emmanuel II. These modern spaces and monuments dialogue with the pre-existing built environment, allowing a rich discourse on Rome's history.

From there, we will consider three different views of the Forum before descending into the Via dei Fori Imperiali to trace the evolution of forum spaces from Caesar to Trajan, culminating at Trajan's Column and Markets.

Led by an expert of Roman archaeology and featured TV host Dr. Darius Arya, this immersive experience will transport viewers to Ancient Rome. Participants will come away with an increased understanding of Rome's complex narrative that is ever-changing amidst its endless layers.
