    Stop At: Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica, Viale Dei Romagnoli 717, 00119 Ostia Antica Italy

    Stroll through the Roman demolishes in this old town. It tends to be characterized a little Pompeii, only couple of kilometers from Rome. The principal settlement can be followed back to the start of the fourth century B.C. Just toward the finish of that century a squared sustained post (castrum) was assembled. This castrum was encompassed by solid tufa dividers and its fundamental street tomahawks - the Cardus and the Decumanus. This military camp, called Ostia from the Latin word Ostium signifying "mouth of the stream", was set up at a separation of around 16 miles from Rome, as a military station to monitor not just the entrance to the Tiber and the adjacent zones, so as to protect Rome. The city was then encompassed by another hover of dividers that is generally credited at the season of Sulla. The dividers delineated a urban territory of around 50 hectares which could be gotten to through three primary doors: Porta Romana,Porta Laurentina and Porta Marina.
