Visit the excavations of Ostia Antica: Daily Life of a Roman city

Originally founded as a Roman military colony not far from the capital to defend the coast and the mouth of the Tiber, Ostia had its next major expansion to the enormous development of trade that fueled the metropolis. Later, with the construction during the first two centuries of empire, the major ports of Claudius and Trajan to the north of the mouth, the port city turned into a residential center for the class of clerical workers in the management of these ports. He saw then increase its population, which reached a very high density and enjoyed all the many public services (baths, aqueducts, theaters, etc..) Of which he was given a Roman city at the height of the empire.
