Ostia Antica isn't nearly as well-known as Pompeii, but as a glimpse into the many aspects of daily life outside ancient Rome, it is more varied. Beautiful mosaic floors, fresco painted walls, amphitheatre, sculpture and an absolute maze of streets, combine to create a powerful...More

Just an easy 25 minute train ride from Rome ( next to Pyramide metro station ), followed by a 400m walk to the gates of this wonderfully preserved archaeological site. Well worth spending at least half a day at the site although if you can...More

Ostia Antica was apparently a major port city for Rome. Then the Tiber shifted, and it wasn't. No trade, no money, abandoned and wonderfully well-preserved.

We were extremely glad to visit Ostia Antica. This is a large well-preserved archaeological site, whereby every day lives are evident of the ancient Roman times. Visiting the excavations of Ancient Ostia, the former harbour of Rome, is a memorable encounter. It is indeed amazing...More

It depends when you intend to go. The ticket office is like a gift shop and the queues are quite slow moving. Out of season it’s not a problem but at the weekends in busy periods it would be worth it.
