9. Ancient Ostia walking tour

 “Ostia Antica”, ancient harbor of Rome, is one of the best preserved old Roman towns. Located at the mouth of the River Tiber, just a few miles from Rome, Ostia soon became the main way for the Romans to the Mediterranean.
Ostia is now a very quiet relaxing place, but once it was a sea port inhabited by very active people.
