Clue explanations:

This uses the usual notation: * is anagram, < is reversal, (ddef) is double definition, () is insertion, _XYZ_ is hidden word, X_/_X is first/last letter.

Additionally, there are a few less standard types of wordplay: a triple definition (in 17-Down, marked by (3def)), a letter swap (in 5-Across, "ROMA" swaps the two final letters to become "ROAM"), and a letter change (in 14-Across).
