sunday, instead of fighting the huge crowds at the vatican [last sunday of each month is free admission], we went to the abandoned/buried/rediscovered/excavated port city of ostia antica. it is located about 10 miles west of rome proper, and 2 miles south of fco airport.
out of 100+ pics taken, these arent nearly the best, but were the most memorable. we discovered an area should probably have been completely roped off..instead of just on three sides.
oh look! stairs...
and they lead to a creepy tunnel!
with multiple creepy dark passageways [illuminated only by camera flash]
a mossy little exit?
sadly..no. blocked off by prison type bars and a drainage grate
