The Museum of Roman Navios

In addition to the magical historic centre of Fiumicino itself, local attractions include the Museo delle Navi Romane (The Maritime Museum, Rome) located at 35-37 Via Guidoni, close to the Leonardo Da Vinci airport in Fiumicino.
This museum was built between 1965 and 1979 after the Leonardo da Vinci airport was constructed between 1958 and 1965. At the nearby Port of Claudius the remains of five Roman ships were discovered and soon after the remains of the ancient harbours and ship hulls came to light- all of which you can experience at the museum today.

Rome, the heart of Catholic Christianity, is the only city in the world to host an entire state, the enclave of the Vatican City, which is often referred to as the capital of two states.
It is the city with the highest concentration of historic and architectural heritage in the world. Its historic centre delimited by the perimeter of the Aurora Walls, with overlapping testimonies of nearly three millennia, is an expression of the historical, artistic and cultural heritage of the Western European world and, in 1980, along with the extraterritorial properties of the Holy See in the city and the basilica of St. Paul outside the walls, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Over 16% of world cultural heritage is in Rome (70% throughout Italy).
Some areas of archaeological interest are the ruins of the Roman city of Ostia (the ruins of the city were excavated from the beginning of the 19th century: there are numerous houses and production facilities, together with public monuments, which make it an 'Important testimony of ancient daily life', and the remains of the imperial ports of Claudio and Traiano and the Necropolis of Porto to the Holy Island.
