Best Preserved Buildings In The Roman Empire
The Pantheon, Colosseum, Curia, and more, in Rome. Then, we'll travel throughout the Empire: amphitheater in Tunisia, "Trajan's Kiosk" in Egypt, a castrum in Jordan, a sanctuary in Lebanon, Hagia Sophia in Turkey, Odeon in Athens, Diocletian's villa in Split, the emperor's audience hall in Trier! 14 of the best preserved buildings from Ancient Rome!

Converted into churches, occupied by later populations, or simply abandoned- remaining untouched for centuries, these are the best preserved buildings in the Roman Empire that we will explore. We'll start with Rome, then travel around the Mediterranean in search of unique buildings that have withstood the test of time.
