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
Ostia does not share the 'glamour' of Pompei, as it gradually fell into disuse as the port was moved to the other side of the Tiber and so it was gradually abandoned rather than being suddenly demolished by a volcano. However, it was a major...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 look the Lido train from Ostiense right near the Piramide metro stop. The trip takes about 20 minutes as the park is short walk. Exit the station and cross over the road on a pedestrian walkway. The ruins are strait ahead.

Although we knew this was a very large site, we were simply not prepared for the sheer size and scope of it. I had planned in advance what I thought we could manage given our age and fitness, and the fact that we were visiting...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.

Visited for half a day during a longer trip to Rome. This was suggested by a couple of locals we were talking to and you can get there in under an hour for €1.50 on the local train from Rome.

I seem to remember seeing some taxis at the train station but in order to get to Ostia Antica site from the station you have to walk up and over a bridge and then It's a 5 min walk down to the entrance which would be a better place to call for a taxi.I don't recall seeing any taxis there. Perhaps ask for a return when you get the taxi out to Ostia. There is also a good cafeteria inside the site should you need to eat and drink.
