Rome Geography By DUNCan Foley

Rome's Geography was really unique. first of it was on a peninsula on that meant that they had a lot of water and that gives them food transportation. Rome was built around the seven hills, which provided a great strategic advantage during war and made the defense of Rome a lot easier. The land was fertile and perfect for agriculture because accessibility of fresh water from the river Tiber. Tiber had a length of 252 miles enough to cover any amount of soldiers to get fresh water and to keep on concurring land and to make Rome more powerful.
