Ostia Antica

save place
An ancient city near Rome
Hop on the commuter train at the Lido Station next to the Piramide Metro stop in Rome and make the worthwhile 25-minute trip to Ostia Antica, Rome's ancient port town and administrative center. The teeming city of up to 100,000 residents is relatively well preserved and allows visitors a peek into the daily life of ancient Romans. Walk the basalt streets, visit the Forum, descend into Mithraic sanctuaries and peruse the fast food and market stalls which were in use until around the 5th century AD.
