If you are visiting Rome and are into historical stuff but don't have the time to visit Pompeii, Ostia Antica archaeological park is a great choice. It is also a less touristy option. You can reach it easily with a local train going towards Cristoforo...More

This place has a lot to see. If you don't mind the walking, you can spend the entire day inside. You can go out for lunch and come back in, but have your walking shoes on.

Since we were staying in Rome for our visit we did not want to do a 6 hour RT ride to Pompeii so we substituted a 2 hour RT commute to Ostia. It was worth every minute if you like to see ruins. Easy to...More

Ostia was ancient Rome's seaport until it was replaced by a new facility in the reign of Claudius. It was abandoned and gradually decayed rather than suffering calamitous destruction like Pompeii or Herculaneum. We visited in December, and the experience was very different from a...More

Our GPS would not accept the stated address so we put in an approximate address on the same street and counted on signage. Don't do that - as the signage for Ostia Antica is sparse and confusing. Also, Ostia Antica is large with a lot...More

While it's possible, it may be better to get to your Rome hotel, relax a bit, and plan a visit on another day. Getting to/from Rome to Ostia Antica, while not extremely difficult, does take several train changes, depending... More
