No photos, and other issues.
This app is a basic digital map, very similar to the Harvard University digital atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilizations (which is free online), but unfortunately it only offers brief wiki’ish descriptions, and a link to the actual wikipedia page, but not a single photo. That’s a real let down. On the upside, if a site is mentioned in an ancient text, there is a link to that text, with the mentioning blurb excised under the source title, which is very a welcome plus. But, if you then proceed to open that text in full (another great option), you have to read through the entire text to find the above mentioned blurb. This should seemingly be highlighted for obvious reasons, but instead you are faced with random underlined names, etc that link you to other semi-relevant location pages. Overall - Definitely needs some streamlining - and no photos is a real bummer. Not yet worth $6.99.

an update: we added photos !
Otherwise, compared to others, we do at least two things more. First, our app contains info about all important Monuments (check Delos, Pompeii, Eulesis, London...) and not only sites; second - all sites and monuments are star ranked indicating their attractiveness and importance for readers or visitors.

Great app for Roman traveling!
Ive used the app to plan numerous trips, visiting Roman ruins and museums of all sizes. It is an invaluable tool, showing one by stars how recommended the place is and giving a good overview of towns and ruins so you know what to expect. Before downloading the app, I overlooked plenty of interesting places on my travels but not any more!
In one place...
I’ve got a trip planned to Italy and I am so happy to have found TimeTravelRome. It’s got so much info all in one place you don’t have to go searching all over for. It’s helped me plan where I’m going, when and what I’m going to see. Nice value for money.
