A cemetery of Ancient Rome with more than 200 graves constructed with 2 floors perfectly preserved

It is a tour that allow us to fully immerge ourselves in the lives of Ancient romans that lived in the 1st roman colony, in Ancient Ostia or “Ostia Antica”, and it gives us an idea about the way of living of the citizens of that historical period thanks to the paintings, mosaics and sculptures still visible on the funerary buildings.  The necropolis area is composed by more than 200 funerary buildings dating back between I and IV century A.d. The necropoli’s graves are composed by a single room or by two floors, often alongside their walls it’s possible to observe inscriptions with the owner’s name, the grave’s dimensions, the rules of use of the sepulchre and the owner’s will. On the sepulchre’s sides used to be depicted the activities that the deceased were known for, such as their job, their skills or their life’s deeds.
