Perhaps the extra star is for the fact that I've actually been to Bath but I couldn't help it. It's so amazing to me to stand in this place that's existed for 2000 years and see just what the Romans were able to create. It's just fascinating. The guide itself is a brief overview of the Roman Baths but it's worth it for the photographs alone. There is such beauty in ruins, and this place is no exception. The city of Bath is also quite beautiful and wandering the city was an additional highlight.

Beautiful photos, and the too-brief story of a fascinating location.
