Description: Have you ever wished you could have seen ancient Rome at the peak of its glory? Now you can! Go on a flight in a hot air balloon over the entire now-vanished ancient city. See how the Rome Reborn team of archaeologists and 3D technicians has brought the city’s thousands of buildings back to life.
Review: Rome Reborn: Flight over Ancient Rome is an educational app that takes you back in time to see what ancient Rome once looked like. While I do wish there was a peaceful animated balloon flight over this 3D Ancient Rome to enjoy, the selected locations, modern-day real-world 360 images, facts and even the hours of narration do make up for it. While this app clearly isn’t going to be for everyone there is just enough educational content here to make it worth its price tag. If you happen to be studying this in school this app could become a great resource to you, but for most of us, its best avoided unless you have a deep interest in its content subject.
