Description

It was the Emperor Claudius in 42 A.D. to build a completely new port at Ostia. Later enlarged by Trajan in 113 AD It will be called Portus Romae for more than five centuries, until the fall of the Roman Empire will not mark also its end and although the location was perfect, next to the mouth of the Tiber, still navigable up to the heart of the capital, no one has thought to return this "legitimate" property to the Eternal City. Finally in 2001 this situation changed and the Port of Rome has become a reality to be enjoyed. Rebuilt close to the ancient site, it goes back to the original structure, which makes the new building attractively "imperial", but the Port of Rome is not designed to handle trades or military campaigns, but is designed for the benefit of the lovers of pleasure and tourists from around the world. In addition, the port area is surrounded by a protected oasis, managed by the Lipu "Italian League for the Protection of Birds" that enriches the area, contributing to environmental protection.
