Summary
If you had a time travel machine and could take a vacation to Ancient Rome, this is the only guidebook you would need! It provides information about ancient Rome like culture, economics, fashion, history, law, and politics of the time while offering practical advice on how to avoid being poisoned, beheaded, or torn apart by an angry mob.There is handy advice on finding the best picnicking spots to watch Julius Caesar's assassination at the Roman Forum in 44 BC, as well as helpful real estate tips to profit from the great Roman fire of AD 64. There are even useful recommendations on which famous historical figures to meet for lunch, and a few nifty pointers on how to avoid being poisoned, beheaded, or torn apart by an angry mob. Questions about things to do or see while viewing Ancient Rome as a time traveler are humorously answered in this handy guide written by a fictitious company called Time Corp as published in the year 2163
