Description

Perhaps unsurprisingly, historical information and classical place names dominate this map of the area around Rome; designed by renowned German antiquarian Friedrich Carl Ludwig Sickler and published by Venanzio Monaldini in 1811.

It shows the coast along the Tyrennhian Sea from Lake Bracchiano to Mount Circeo and inland to the foothills of the Central Apennines. The map was designed as a travel guide to aid those interested in the historic aspects of the region, and as such it shows extensive topographical detail, ancient sites, transportation routes, and other important landmarks.
