History

The Tower of Nero was built on the site of a previous lighthouse, which had been damaged by fire. Nero commissioned the construction of a new and grander lighthouse, which he intended to be a symbol of his reign. The tower was completed in 64 AD and named after the emperor.

The Tower of Nero stood for over 300 years, serving as a vital aid to navigation for ships entering the harbor of Ostia. However, it was severely damaged by an earthquake in the 4th century AD. The tower was partially rebuilt, but it was never fully restored to its former glory.

Architecture

The Tower of Nero was a massive structure, with a square base and a cylindrical upper section. The base was made of stone, while the upper section was made of brick. The tower was decorated with marble and other fine materials.

The tower's interior was divided into several levels. The lowest level served as a storage area for supplies. The middle levels contained the lighthouse's fuel and lighting equipment. The top level was an open platform, where the lighthouse keepers tended the flames.
