    Story
    "Easy to follow and very informative."
    Where does iJourneys Old Rome rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was quite a cheap audio book and compared to the more expensive books I found it to be better as its very easy to follow as you walk through Rome. The narration guiding you through the streets dose sound a bit amateurish in parts but the information was very interesting and informative. I only wished it was a bit longer.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of iJourneys Old Rome?

    Description of the area where the "ides of march" happened.


    What about Elyse Weiner’s performance did you like?

    She makes sure you are in the correct place by guiding you to landmarks before continuing with the tour.


    Any additional comments?

    Money well spent as I got a lot out of my trip to Rome with this guide.

    "Concept is good"

    What an excellent idea! No need to purchase an audiotour, just download the program, go at your own pace and enjoy the sights.
    It's pretty good (and better than Romewalks) but these walks still need to be fleshed out a little better in my opinion. This was the best of the audio tour iPod files we found, and it was not a bad way to do Ancient Rome (and much better than going without a guide of any sort). But I do wish there was a bit more history and substance to much of the tour.
