Simple bridge, good views, not so much better than those you would have from the shore. Needs a little maintenance.

when in Rome, can be good to take a car and go to the seaside. There are plenty of houses built in the 20s, with a nice style. Many restaurant, ice cream shops and caffe to enjoy!

Nice place in the center of Ostia. It goes inside the sea and gives a great view of the town. Nice to take some pictures

We stayed here for 2 nights and were sorry that we did so. The sea front area has little charm and the whole place seemed run down. The restaurants were mostly fast food joints and we chose to eat at home. As the nearest beach...More
