Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica
Ancient tradition suggests that Ostia was founded by the fourth king of Rome, Ancus Marcius, who was believed to have ruled in the late seventh century BC. No archeological remains have been found from this period, and if there was a settlement, it would have been a small city, not a village. Most of the buildings that have been excavated were built in the first half of the second century when such notable Roman emperors such as Trajan and Hadrian ruled. Due to the addition of a harbor district, Ostia was rich and prosperous until the Severan period in the early third century. During this time, Ostia’s population was roughly 50,000 people, including 17,000 slaves. While exploring the ruins, you will see fascinating remains of many different types of buildings and establishments. Price of admission at Ostia Antica archaeological park is currently 10 Euros per person. Tickets can be purchased at the site before entering.
