Rome: further away: Ostia — a labyrinth of an ancient city

Suddenly, we enter the great ancient port city. Indeed, the preserved walls reach at most the first floor, and the sea has moved away from the ancient times by two kilometers. But the whole thing is impressive – both the area it covers, comparable maybe to Pompeii, as well as mosaics on the market square and in the thermae, sculptures, remnants of marbles and frescos.

What is more, despite its presence on the UNESCO list, there are no crowds and prepared and fenced routes. You can venture into the labyrinth of ruins, into the grass, and look for interesting places like for treasures.
