Ostia Antica

Recently archaeologists have discovered a secret part of Ostia, the ancient seaport close to Rome, which they say is bigger than Pompeii. Ostia was the first Roman colony and the first river port in Italy. The name of Ostia derives from "Ostium" that in Latin means "mouth of the river" and it's far 25 km from the Eternal City. Here some pictures taken a few years ago
