Ostia Antica

We have returned from Rome with many photos to share.  This is a typical street in Ostia Antica, the Roman port city at the mouth (ostium) of the Tiber River, which was founded around 620 B.C.  It was home to 60,000 people at one time and was abandoned with the fall of the Roman Empire.
