Excavations of ancient Ostia began under Pius VII in the 1800s and were picked up with vigor once again in view of the World's Fair of 1942, unearthing upwards of 34 of the 50 hectars of original constructions.
It is possible to admire, among other finds, the Theatre, the Hot Springs of Neptune with its splendid mosaics, the Barracks of the Police, the so-called Mithraeum of the Seven Heavens and the Domus of Amore and Psyche.
