Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica
The ancient Roman city of Ostia was an important part of the Roman Republic and Empire, serving as the official port of the capital. Today, the sprawling 10,000-acre archeological site is a perfect half-day trip from Rome. Think Pompeii without the crowds. It’s easy to get to from the city center — about half an hour by train — and there is so much to see including amazing bathhouse mosaics, theaters, a forum not unlike the ones in Pompeii and Rome, and a little museum that houses statues and art discovered on the grounds. Pack a hat and water bottle and go exploring! #ancientrome #ruins #history
