The geography of Rome BY: Liliane E. Krumins

In Rome there are many different landscapes the Apennines mountains impacted Rome greatly. The slopes leveled off to large flat plains that are good for farming, much better than Greece.they also offered protection to Rome though it was not needed. They did not isolate Rome because they were not jagged and easy to cross.
