A house with a view (Rome in Augustus' last years)

(x-posted in askahistorian , history , history_time )

Ok, I hope this is a right place to post.

I am looking for pictures, maps, drawings or texts that can give me an accurate idea of what would be the view that Octavius Augustus would have from his house at the Pallatine Hill during the last years of his life, which I guess it's almost the same as asking for a view of Rome in 5-14 AD.

Anybody knows about web pages or books that maybe have attempted reconstructions? Or the best way to approach is making a list of public/private buildings of the time individually and them put them together because there is no such thing? (if so, any specific place to look? -- if not I'll keep looking in different places).

Thank you kindly for your time.
