The Historvius Explorer page allows you to find your very own world of history travel – whether you’re simply browsing the map for historic sites, seeking history travel inspiration or looking to explore by historic period or famous figure.You can explore our historic destinations in a number of ways: by country, town or holiday resort, by date, by historic period, by historic figure or simply by a free-word search.

You can also use our advanced results functionality to narrow your selection as you go – for example, you may wish to see all the historic sites near your resort, and then narrow that selection to view only those of a certain time period on your own bespoke map.

Finally, remember you can shortlist sites as you go and then produce your very own history travel itinerary with day-by-day maps and information on every site you’re going to visit.
