When in Rome, do as the Romans do – follow their customs, imbibe their culture, and live their king-sized life. History would be half as interesting as it is today had it not been for the Roman Empire. Traditionally lasting from 27 BC to 476 AD, Roman Empire was one of the largest empires of the ancient world. It covered most of the area along the Mediterranean Sea and became a seat for budding talent. The region was blessed with some of the most prolific and outstandingly talented scholars, philosophers, artists and painters who contributed immensely to the world knowledge. Before the establishment of the Roman Empire, Roman republic ruled the region. The death of the notorious dictator Julius Caesar marked the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Roman Empire. Augustus Ceasar was the first Roman Emperor of the Roman Empire. Over time, several ancient emperors and kings ruled the region - from Nero the mad tyrant to Vespasian who built the historic Roman Colosseum, Titus who destroyed the temple in Jerusalem to Marcus Aurelius, the philosopher.
