Munster, 1550.  Simple, but informative, map of major natural and human networks in and surrounding Rome.

Pinard, 1555.  Just a few years after Munster’s map, this bird’s eye view of Rome illustrates a gradual infiltration of human growth into Rome’s surrounding.  An interactive map can be found here.

The Nolli, 1748.  This beautiful and influential plan can be viewed in more detail here.
