Ancient Ostia wheelchair accessible tours.

Tradition says that was founded by Ancus Marcius, the fourth king of Rome.

It seems that during the Royal period there was a built-up area near the mouth of the Tiber, where there were some salt marshes producing salt.

A priceless and essential wealth.

That the whole area, was strategically important for Rome.

In any case, the first settlement can be traced back to the beginning of the VI century BC.

Immediately after the defeat of the Etruscan town of Veio, situated on the right bank of the river, fell to the Roman army.

Only at that century a squared fortified post was built.

This military camp, called Ostia from the Latin word Ostium meaning “mouth of the river”.

Was established at a distance of around 16 miles from Rome.

As a military outpost to keep under control not only the access to the Tiber, but also its lower course and nearby areas, in order to defend Rome.

Ostia, is the first Roman colony.

Became immediately a river port acquiring a commercial function to supply Rome with food stuff.

Particularly wheat, even if its strategic military function as naval base certainly prevailed.
