Navi cariche di olio, grano e di salsa di pesce, “il garum” , scaricavano qui il loro prezioso carico rifornendo l’Urbe di beni di prima necessità , e non solo.

Condomini, domus, terme, grandi horrea, templi , il grande teatro, la toilette pubblica, i bar e le taverne. Una città cosmolita , frequentata da marinai e commercianti, addetti i ai trasporti, sacerdoti di varie religioni, che ci fa conoscere la vita di 2000 anni fa.

Ostia Antica was Rome’s harbour city for centuries and home to a thriving, cosmopolitan population drawing its people from the entire Mediterranean. The gateway to Rome, trade goods and slaves arrived by ship to be transported up the Tiber into the heart of the city. Fortunately for us, today it is a large, well preserved, archaeological site revealing all the aspects of life in Ancient Rome. There is something for everyone here, with a thousand years of history carved into the stones and bricks.
After the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, the city fell into decay, was eventually abandoned, and remained untouched, protected under the sands, only to be rediscovered in the 19th century. During our stroll we will see beautiful painted walls, mosaics, and statues, marvel at heating systems, marble decorations and imposing buildings: an amphitheatre, public bathes, taverns, inns, shops, warehouses, and apartments buildings. The large open theatre is still used to this day in the summer.
You can easily imagine being the owner of a luxury home, or a worker renting a small apartment — an “insula”. Sit at a bar stool where locals stopped for a snack and a drink, relax in the VIP section of the theatre and visualize the actors on stage.
