Ancient Roman Art

From Rick Steves’ Europe.

Rick Steves’ Europe Season 12 showcases Europe’s great art and architecture. © 2024 | We follow Rome’s rise through its awe-inspiring art, starting at Rome’s humble birthplace in the Forum. Soon Rome is graced with supersized monuments like the majestic domed Pantheon and the Colosseum, where gladiators battled to the death. We also get a glimpse of Rome’s more intimate side: the colorful mosaics, luxurious frescoes, and realistic portraits of the solid citizens who made Rome great. #ricksteveseurope #artofeurope #arthistory
