Synonymous with imperial rule, the historic timeline of the Roman Empire is a tapestry woven from its origins along seven hilltop villages to the shores of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Its influence upon the ancient world rapidly spread as ambitious Roman emperors swiftly expanded the empire.

Although founded upon the principles of a "Republic", imperialism soon became a defining element of Roman authority. The legacy of ancient Rome continues to influence our world today. Its alluring cities - Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples and Pompeii, are all an attractive taste of an empire gone but not forgotten.
