Avete omnes!

At last, Roma Antiqua gets Her own tourbook...set in Roma Antiqua! Ancient Rome on Five Denarii a Day explains to the visitor how to find things, meet people, and get around in the Mother City. Like any good travel guide, it includes tips on the food; warnings on things that might trigger a little culture shock; and a local-language phrasebook. The book is due out this summer in the US, and may already be out in Europe. Here's an excerpt to tide you over:
