This is a must for anyone who is interested in Roman history. The park covers an entire town, most of which is incredibly well preserved. Unfortunately for us many of the wonderful mosaics had been covered over to protect them from the winter elements, but...More

Visited last year and found the experience to be remarkable. The only downside is that there is just so much to see that you would need several visits. Go there by the inexpensive train service from central Rome. The amphitheatre is amazing but so are...More

Quick easy train ride from Rome (don't let your hotel clerk sell you a bus tour, it's not necessary). Park is larger than it seems when you're entering so don't get bogged down in the necropolis. There is only one cafe inside the park at...More

This is only a 45 minute train ride from Rome and worth every second you spend there! Truly a gem in hiding this is a 2000 year old city discovered under silt from the Tiber. We spent 5 hours there and could have spent another...More

So I set aside the day to visit Ostia Antica. It’s about a 25 minute train ride from Rome, I’d advise catching the train from Porta S. Paolo, the train station can be found next door to the Pyramid metro stop. The train journey to...More

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
