From the Publisher:

The latest installment in the popular Past and Present series, Italy: Monuments Past and Present surveys the most important buildings and monuments of Italian antiquity. Ancient landmarks are illustrated as they appear today, and through the use of plastic overlays, as they likely appeared when still intact. The book tours several geographic areas, Including Rome, Sicily, Pompeii, and Herculaneum. The authors offer a brief history of each region and an overview of its significant buildings and monuments. These introductions are followed by a close examination of individual sites such as the Coliseum and the Forum in Rome, Hadrian's Villa, the Temple of Ceres in Paestum, and the Temple of Apollo in Pompeii. An accessible and handy guide, Italy: Monuments Past and Present is an excellent resource for travelers and students alike.
