This area is located at some distance from the main city of Rome and was once the port and harbour of Ancient Rome. Today, it has been converted into an archaeological site and is in close proximity to the Ostia suburb of Rome.
The main draws of this place are not restricted to the huge archaeological dig site, but mostly the large amounts of mosaic work, sculptures, frescoes and astonishingly well preserved buildings. Most of these buildings date back to ancient times, some going as far back as Early Rome. The military camp or Castrum and the temples dedicated to Minerva, Juno and Jupiter known as the Capitolium are the earliest buildings which are speculated to have been built in around the 3rd century, BC.
In all, scientists have assumed that they have only been able to unearth two thirds of the port city with a portion of it still awaiting discovery.
