Charming miniature map of Rome, with the Tiber running through it. The plan is simplified to show only the major buildings, such as St. Peter's and the Vatican. The map is titled in a strapwork cartouche. On the top of the map is a truly beautiful view of the city skyline, with its own banner title.
