Ostia Antica

FotorCreatedItaly2 We visited the large archaeological site Ostia Antica today. This was the harbour city of ancient Rome around 7th Century BC, and the site is amazingly well preserved because the basic structure of many buildings are still left standing. We spotted many painted works on the walls, mosaic patterns on the floors and the odd sculpture here and there. FotorCreatedItaly3The entire site was like a huge maze and the boys had a whale of a time trying to hide from us in the ancient housing compounds.

  1. Jane, base on what your described, the building look like of the ancient types. You may tell the boys of the fairy tales if you can.
