10 Greatest Ancient Roman Monuments – Travel Video
At its zenith, the Roman Empire stretched from Morocco and Portugal in the west all the way to Egypt and Armenia in the east. Founded in 27 BC, the empire and its later continuation finally collapsed in 1453 AD when the great city of Constantinople was lost to the Ottomans. Due to the vast territory it encompassed and the incredible number of years it endured, the Roman Empire left behind a host of impressive monuments. While their heyday has long gone, these now act as important historical landmarks and popular tourist attractions.
