Hi guys and welcome back to my blog!
In this post I will show you four must see archaeological sites in Italy
Known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum was used for the Ancient Roman games. The large structure built of travertine marble contains an arena surrounded by an auditorium of four rows with 80 arcades, each containing 70,000 seats. Gladiators, (usually slaves or prisoners of war) used to fight in order to regain their freedom. The Colosseum was also used for staging classical dramas and re-enacting bloody naval battles on an artificial lake.
Ostia Antica, Rome
The archaeological site of Ostia Antica was a city with a port. A link between the River Tiber and the Tyrrhenian Sea. There is an excellent state of preservation of its buildings, frescoes, statuary and mosaics. Among the many buildings there is one of the world’s oldest synagogues dating to 41AD to 54AD. You can have an idea of what the port when it was a flourishing commercial centre complete with temples, public baths, apartment buildings, forum.

Sito Archeologico di Pompei, Naples.
Pompei it’s amazing . It was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples . Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD
It allows us to recontract life as it was during the Roman Empire 2000 years ago! Streets, houses, market, even paint and plumbing! We can still see the road pipes that carrided the water into people’s houses.
Valle dei Templi, Agrigento.
It is what remain of the Ancient Greek colony of Akragas founded in 581BC. There are several temples that are almost intact. The Temple of Concord is in excellent condition and gives an idea of how magnificent the city must have been at its nadir. If you have time, visit the nearby Museo Archeologico Regionale di Agrigento (Agrigento Regional Archaeological Museum) on Contrada San Nicola 12.
