Discovering the ancient Rome’s seaport: Ostia

Nice beaches, a famous archaeological site and a lot of restaurants and bars overlooking the sea. If you are wondering where to go to the beach when in Rome, here you find the answer: Ostia is a large neighborhood which used to be the ancient port of the Eternal City. It is approximately 30 kilometres to the northeast, on the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner, so Ostia becomes a great place to discover. Not only can you organize a visit to the stunning archeological area of Ostia Antica, but you can also spend a day sunbathing and having fun.

Locals use to hang out here, because Ostia is really close to the city: there is the regional Rome-Lido railway line which connects it to the centre of Rome.

There are many nice establisments in the so-called “Lido di Ostia”, where you can eat fresh fish or simply have something to drink while enjoying a very beautiful view. During the Summer they attract a lot of people, because they turn into the heart of the Roman nightlife.
