Here is a true/false travel guide that takes its readers to the heart of the greatest cities of Antiquity, as if they were travellers of olden days!

We discover the richness and the particularities of each civilisation, as well as exceptional architectural achievements, thanks to a fun and extremely documented approach, which uses all the codes of the travel guide: pictograms, maps, different layers of texts and rich illustrations to show the vibrancy of the city.
Like a modern tourist, the reader finds all the indispensable information to explore six cities at the time of their splendour: where to eat, where to live, where to bathe? How to have fun?
Discover ancient cities as if you were there!
