Ostia Antica

My Rating:

The positives:

The train will get you from the city centre to Ostia Antica in 25 minutes for just EUR 1.50. It’s like Pompeii but better! ;-)

The negatives:

The excavation site is so huge that you’d really need two full days to explore it properly. ;-)


Why not follow up a morning at the Ostia Antica excavation site with an afternoon by the sea? Make sure you wear proper shoes that are suitable for exploring and pack sun cream and water if you’re planning to visit on a hot day.
