In today's travel guide for culture vultures, Tim Marlow and Jenny Ross take a trip to Rome.
FACTUAL Cultural Breaks
From 9.00am BBC Knowledge Here is a chance to see some of the ancient city's outstanding sights in the company of Richard Coles and Jenny Ross. It is a whistle-stop tour that looks at the remnants of ancient Rome and the legacy of the Renaissance. One highlight is a visit to the Capitoline Museum -the oldest in the world - which this year features an exhibition about the myth of the city's foundation, Romulus and Remus, which involves a she-wolf. There is also a visit to the Domus Aurea, the Golden House which was reopened to the public last year after almost 20 years of restoration work. Here, in Emperor Nero's palace there are traces of frescoes and mosaics that inspired Raphael and other Renaissance painters. GE

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
