The app uses all of the pioneering capability of the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to give the user the easiest and most informative experience possible.
All locations of interest are marked on the map giving accurate GPS coordinates along with a map marker that shows the user precisely where they are. Each Roman Site gives a full description of what can be found there, a brief history, opening times and contact details.
