The Colonia Tour Book


A walker’s guide to the ruins and relics of the 2000-year-old Roman City that became Cologne, Germany.


The Colonia Tour Book is the penultimate tourist guide to the ancient city of Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium, or CCAA, or simply Colonia, the ancient Roman Empire regional capital city upon which grew today’s city of Cologne.  Use this guidebook to find the remains of Colonia’s streets, buildings, cemeteries, its aqueduct, and gravesites of its citizens from 1500 to 2000 years ago. See Roman mosaic flooring still intact, the remains of its largest government building, the Praetorium, and its late era Fortress Deutz (Divitia).  Trace the path of its city water supply, the longest aqueduct in the Empire, seeing all its necessary parts.  All with precise walking directions and detailed maps, and most sites illustrated in the book so you know what to look for!

Contains four walking trails, two streetcar/tram+walking trails, an introduction to the history and geographic layout of the Roman city, a list of must-see highlights, museum and site locations, six trail maps, hundreds of photographs, extra sites off the six trails, checklists for keeping track of sights seen (and ‘usable’ for Colonia ‘visas and citizenship,’) and advice for tourists.
