Ostia Antica, Rome - Reviews of Ostia Antica - IgoUgo
For at least 600 years this was a busy port, but the area declined suddenly following a reduction in commerce, and the onset of malaria. Covered by sand and mud that accumulated over the centuries, it was perfectly preserved and has therefore survived intact. The Baths of Cisiarii and the Baths of N...

Ostia Antica- Rome, Italy - VirtualTourist.com
I loved my visit to Ostia Antica, Rome's ancient port city. (The Latin ostium means mouth and Ostia was at the mouth of the Tevere - the Tiber River, which flows through Rome.) After the fall of Rome, it was deserted, and the river flooded again and again, burying the city in layers of mud (just as ...

Entering the gates to the excavations, visitors first come upon the cemeteries as ancient Romans buried their dead outside of city walls.

that surprised me with its vastness. Why? Just because as I thought previously it was not in the habit of the ancient Romans to create such great spaces inside their cities. This square (because that's what the Italian word 'piazzale' means when translated into English) was ideated by the skillful a...

Ostia Antica's Ruins | Museum/Attraction Review | Rome | Frommers.com
Ostia flourished for about 8 centuries before it began to wither away. By Constantine's time (4th c. A.D.), the worm had turned. The barbarian sieges of Rome in the 5th century spelled the end of Ostia. Gradually, it became little more than a malaria bed, a buried ghost city that faded into history....
