If You're Going to Rome, Pompeii, or Other Roman Sites . . .

. . . do yourself a big favor and run, don't walk to watch the online lectures on Roman architecture by Yale Professor Diana Kleiner before your trip. We just returned from Italy and unfortunately I didn't watch these until we got back. Makes me want to turn around and get back on the plane to Rome asap.

Even if you just watch the first one or two lectures, I think your trip could be incredibly enriched. Even better, the lectures are also downloadable from iTunes/iTunes University in video (preferable) or audio format so you can take them with you to Italy, and even play them at 1 1/2 speed to condense the time spent watching.

Here's the link:
