Found this while looking for day tours on Viator but decided we could go on our own and we were right. It is an easy commuter train ride from Rome and an easy walk from the station. It is much bigger than I had anticipated...More

We loved our visit to this amazing site. It’s really quite astounding how large it is. It’s also very quiet with not many tour groups or people around. So much history! The reason I haven’t given it 5 stars is because it’s not easy to...More

I've been to Rome a few times, but never made it out to Ostia Antica before. It's definitely worth a day trip from Rome. You can take the train from Rome, and it's a short walk from the train station to the archeological site. It...More
