ancient Rome was founded about 753 BC and ended in the AD 400s. The city of Rome grew to become a marvel for its times with temples, theaters, fountains, statues, and public baths. Most people in the city of Rome lived in apartment type houses called insulas. In the countryside people lived in villas. Soldiers were stationed in forts in outlying areas that had been conquered by Rome.

A lot about Ancient Rome can be found by looking at the city of Pompeii, and Herculanium which was destroyed (and preserved in a way) by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. There is a Eye witness made by Pliney the Younger who was watching his uncle Pliney the Elder was dieing in Pompeii
This is a large subject to cover, but as a starting point I would suggest you look in the archives of Dan Carlin's "Hardcore History" website at http://www.dancarlin.com/disp.php?page=hharchive. He has a set of podcasts you can download for free that cover numerous historical subjects, including the Roman Empire.

Alternatively, if you use iTunes go to the iTunes store and do a search on Dan Carlin. The available podcasts will be displayed for free download.

So download one of his files and be prepared to be entertained and educated at the same time. He really does make history come alive.

The Romans around the Italian part of the Roman Empire basically looked like the Italians today. The Italians today were basically where Roman soldiers mated with the barbarian Vandals. But the Ancient Romans and Italians basically look the same.
