The Walks in Rome app is designed to give you the ability to visit the city and explore it yourself, at your own pace, with the help of high quality commentary by John Fort and photographic content to show you what the audio is referring to. You will need a Wi-Fi connection to download the app, which comes with the first walk unlocked, but can then use it offline. You will need to go back online if you wish to download more walks.
Your own position will be shown to you once you have switched on the locations setting on your phone. When you approach one of the points of interest tap on the tab in the list containing the name of the place you are in front of – or on the relevant numbered marker - and the audio player will appear. Press play to start, then use the slider to scroll backwards and forwards, much like on YouTube, so you can move ahead or listen to something again as many times as you want.
The photographs and their captions are meant as a visual guide to help you understand what it is you are supposed to be looking at. Flick through the slide show as you listen and use the images to help you find the real thing. The photographs are a help, but nothing compares to the real thing. That is why you are in Rome. If you are not, you can still use Walks in Rome as a type of interactive audio book. Either way, we hope you enjoy it.

Johnny is fabulously knowledgeable and interesting.
You gain the sense of earning a Ph D in Roman history from Oxford. Americans will enjoy learning The King's English while touring Rome. Very smart it is!
