Nice to see a quiz about my city! Good set of answers. A few minor points which I am not too convinced about: 1) the seven hills are 'in' Rome,not surrounding it 2) not sure what 'public square' means but Piazza Navona is not the biggest one in Rome (eg see http://www.lalampadina.net/magazine/2013/10/la-piazza-piu-grande-di-roma/ ) 3) not sure it's correct to call gladiators 'soldiers' 4) sack of Rome sounds more like a 'military event' than a conflict
