Port (Italy) (with Roman Road)

Excavations in Classe (Roman Classis) near Ravenna, Italy. This Roman road runs beside the harbor canal of the Roman port of Classis. The canal was constructed circa 25 B.C. to join Classis, the port of the city of Ravenna, to the estuary of the river Po in an attempt to combat the continual silting up of the harbor. Formation of mudflats by silting has proceeded to such a degree that the modern coast has receded to a distance of approximately eight kilometers from the ancient harbor. © 1996 Craig R.
