OSTIA ANTICA

Daily life in the town

Founded by the legendary Anco Marzio in the 7th century BC, Ostia offers visitors the opportunity to be
fully submerged in the atmosphere of a roman town and to follow its evolution in the eight centuries of its
life, discovering the details of the daily life of the citizens and non-citizens.
The ancient port of Ostia, closely linked to the capital both economically and politically, throws us directly into the animated confusion of the streets of the port of a metropolis and invites us to observe and discover: production, habits, objects, social classes.
Step into bakeries, public baths, temples for the official imperial cult and hundreds of sanctuaries dedicated to all the gods of the known world; a port is always the center of the world – it is smaller scale of the whole known world.
People, slaves and masters, rich and poor, houses and tombs ...
In Ostia everything seems still alive, perfectly recognizable.
The perfect place to discover the thousand stories that composed the history of the capital of the Empire.
