Ostia Antica is sometimes called the 'better Pompeii' because of the astonishing preservation of its buildings.You will stroll through ancient taverns, baths, apartments, groceries and theaters,and their present condition so strikingly exceeds that of the Roman Forum, Imperial Forum, and Pompeii that it seems a misnomer to call them ruins.'
