Archaeological excavations of Ostia Antica, history...
The excavations of Ostia Antica show a large part of the historic city, next to public monuments there are many private buildings (houses and offices of associations), which illustrate very well the daily life in antiquity.
Points of particular interest are: the theater, still used for performances and concerts accommodating up to 4000 people, the Necropolis, located just outside the walls as it was expected from the Roman tradition, the Temple of Hercules, shrouded in mystery about the statue of divinity and the Synagogue, the oldest of which were found the remains in Europe.
