Summary Travel to the heart of the Roman Empire to examine its remarkable civil engineering project that resulted in a 53-thousand mile network of highways. Host Michael Guillen takes viewers on a chariot ride through ancient Rome and discovers that many of the highway amenities that viewers imagine as modern developments date back over 2000 years. It's an amazing look at a travel network where so little has changed after so many years.
