Ancient Rome forever holds a place as one of the most impressive cities ever in the history of humankind. The architecture of the Roman Colosseum rivaled or surpassed even the most advanced modern stadiums. And the sport went far beyond today’s standards for majesty… and brutality. Rome was home to the great civilization of Julius Caesar and dynasties that spanned across the continents.

The empire has long since fallen but you can explore it now, just as it was centuries ago, in Virtual Reality using the Unimersiv app.

You can now explore Ancient Rome using Virtual Reality
