Rome! Perhaps more than any culture, we are fascinated by the legend and lore of this breathtaking ancient empire. Much of how we live and what we think in our Western world was birthed in the fabled cities and byways of this sprawling empire.

Hadrian was one of the Roman Empire’s most capable and successful leaders.  Remembered for his famed building project in the North of England – the legendary Hadrian’s Wall – he was also revered as a patron of the arts and inspired builder throughout the Roman Empire.
