There are even useful recommendations on which famous historical figures to meet for lunch, and a few nifty pointers on how to avoid being poisoned, beheaded, or torn apart by an angry mob. Questions about things to do or see while viewing Ancient Rome as a time traveler are humorously answered in this handy guide written by a fictitious company called Time Corp as published in the year 2163.
