Most people are aware how influential the Romans were at the height of their rule. I don’t think that people always realize how the Romans were everywhere. I guess they were some of the first hardcore travelers and traders and everywhere they went, they meant serious business. Roman ruins lay scattered across most of Europe, North Africa, Western Asia and Britain. If you travel to any of these places today and visit the sights, you will most likely end up with ‘ruin fatigue’ (similar to ‘cathedral fatigue’…).
