One of the most ancient area and very well preserved of Imperial Rome. The etymology of the word "Ostia" comes from the latin word "Ostium", that is mouth of a river on the sea. The city had been founded about 2500 years ago by king Anco Marzio and it had a great importance on the military and navy fields because of its harbour.
