Rome has its own seven wonders, within its very own city. They include the Circus Maximus and Forum. It's quite astounding how emperors built these structures almost as monuments to be remembered by. As the dangers in Rome were peril, even for emperors, Trajan was not going to die unremembered.

it's interesting to think that in ancient times only the rich could have access to toilets.

Good for them. If that is what they were used for, then good for them. I am a fan of plumbing. When i look at it that's not really what i see. it looks more artistic than practical.

Patrick Kwong's curator insight, March 9, 2014 4:59 AM

The plumbing system in Rome is an extraordinary feature among the many architecture such as aqueducts and roads. The Romans had a “perfected” version of the ancient pipeline, as public toilets and private homes were connected to a main drainage system, which is comparable to our extremely vast pipeline throughout America. It’s impressive that these Romans were so ahead of their time, but unfortunate that only the higher class could be allowed to live …more hygienically, as the poor  would use urine to launder clothes.
