Home / Italy / Ostia Antica 48

Ostia Antica is a large archeological site, that is the location of the harbour city of ancient Rome, 15 miles (25 kilometers) southwest of Rome. At the mouth of the River Tiber, Ostia was Rome's seaport, but due to silting the site now lies 3 kilometres (2 miles) from the sea. The site is noted for the excellent preservation of its ancient buildings, magnificent frescoes and impressive mosaics.
