Ostia, its history and beauties
Ostia, which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea, is a locality at the gates of Rome full of history and culture, but also of beach resorts crowded during the hot Roman summer season and which offer relaxation and fun for turists.
As Rome began expanding (around 400 B.C.), Ostia was conquered, and a fort, or castrum, was built here. Ostia — often called Rome’s first colony — served as a naval base, protecting Rome from any invasion by river.
By A.D. 150, when Rome controlled the Mediterranean, Ostia’s importance became commercial rather than military. Rome eventually outgrew the port of Ostia, and a vast new port was dug nearby (where Rome’s airport now stands). But Ostia remained a key administrative and warehousing center, busy with the big business of keeping more than a million Romans fed and in sandals.
With the fall of Rome, the port was abandoned. Over time, the harbor silted up, and the Tiber retreated to about one mile away. The mud that eventually buried Ostia actually protected it from the ravages of time — and stone-scavenging medieval peasants
