Ostia Antica Ancient Port City of Rome
The Tiber River in Rome used to twist around to this area and this city at one time was the Port City for Rome. In the 1970's this city was miraculously found covered in ancient MUD. The mud was cleaned off and this amazing city emerged. Remarkably intact! This is one of the coolest places I've ever seen. I tas almost as if I could picture the Romans who walked these streets!
