I think pictures in this post may confuse people a bit. One thing is the 'new' port area, at the end of Via Portuense (or begining...) and where Via della Torre Clementina starts. This covers pretty much all the pictures showing water and boats in this post. It is very charming, with lots of restaurants and cafés. If your timing is right, and you get to the edge of the pier at the end of Via della Torre Clementina at the right time of a sunny or semi-cloudy day, you will witness one of the most gloriuos sunsets of your life. But the Porto di Traiano is the ancient port, rather its ruins ruins, that is a good half hour walk away. If you are in a B&B or hotel in the area, check if they borrow or rent bikes and then, just bike on Via Portuense *on the sidewalks*. They are not that busy in this part of the town (but the roads are, trust me). Short after the entry of a couple of private parking lots for travellers, you will find the entry to the ancient ports, Porto di Claudio and Porto di Traiano. Fascinating place. Everywhere in Rome, one walks on history but inside the park were the ruins have surfaced, one walks on history and *water*! However, if you hope to see the full extention of the hexagonal basin of the old port, one needs to walk/bike a bit further up the road and get to Oasi di Porto, where they run paid charriot rides around the basin, that has high trees along all its sides.

Portus or the Porto di Traiano is the mother of all ports and worth a visit. The problem is getting there as there is no car parking available anywhere near the entrance. It's possible to park your car some distance away and walk which is what I did. I enjoyed the site and the fact that there were almost no other visitors. There is a bus stop near the entrance, but I don't know which bus it is or where to get it.

A number of reviewers have mentioned that there is not much to do here expect relax, enjoy the many restaurants and fishing port and then go. Not true, for us. What they don't mention, and we didn't know until we arrived, was that 20 mins walk away (inland!) are the remains of a port built in the 2nd C AD by Claudius and then modified by Trajan. It was buried in silt as the river did its job over hundreds of years, then abandoned. Excavations took place last century and now, in what is now a lovely rustic environment but used to be the waterfront, you can spend quite a few hours following a well marked and documented track exploring this massive bit of ruined infrastructure.

Not quite walking distance (maybe) is Ostia Antica - very well documented elsewhere as an alternative to Pompeii without the travel time, although it does not have the drama of Pompeii.

This is all meant to say that if you are staying in Porto di Traiano or Porto di Claudio there is a lot to look at besides a number of fishing boats and restaurants. We found it a perfect place to stay for two days before contemplating a long plane ride home to Australia. Quiet, well provisioned and fascinating.

We were able to book a visit on one of the few days it is open each month. There is a good map to carry that shows all the paths, and the signage is good along the way. The ancient storehouses are clearly visible, as are the old canals that connected the hexagonal basin to the sea and the Tiber. There are also the ruins of a very early Christian basilica. The basin itself can only be viewed from the top of a range of storehouses and through a fence, because the basin is still on private property.

Beautiful little sea town with a pretty port. There is a castle nearby to take a peak at. Plenty of restaurants, pizza places, and outdoor seating. It's clean, pretty, great photo opps and a place to just stroll, hang out, eat lunch, take some photos and enjoy vacation or a day with the family.

It if more pleasant to stay here instead of the airport. Lots of nice restaurants and cafes, and nice port to watch the trawlers come and go and relax by the Tiber in the sun.

Beats staying at the airport.

The peir is across the street from the Hotel Tiber, and enhances a stay at that hotel. You can see the pier ffrom many rooms at the hotel, and you can walk along the pier for exercise. At about 3:30 the fishing boats start to arrive at the pier to off-load their catch of the day. The locals line up and buy fresh fish, carrying thier purchases home in plastic bags. It remains busy for about 2 hours as shio after ship arrives with their catch. We watched several cats hep themselves to a purloined small fish, darting away when noticed by the ship's crew. Some of the fish were still gasping for their last breath, so fresh was the catch. B about 5 pm all of the ships have off loaded their catch, and the locals disappear from the pier pier. About 5 in the morning we saw several men fishing from the pier.

If you have an hour to realx in a place with is not very touristic, you like to see the Tiber river flowing to the sea and buy some fresh sea food, it's the place for you.
Don't expect and you'll be surprized

This 2000+ year old port is truly Amazing. Much of the structural integrity exists. Built about 20 minutes from the airport makes for easy access to spend a few hours. Highly recommended. Many fishing boats and photography opportunities abound.

If you're coming off a plane into Fiumicino, a walk along the port -- a couple hours after you land -- is a great way to begin your stay in Italy. Watch the boats come in with their catch, fisherman repairing their nets, the long fishing poles along the pier. And dozens of restaurants from which to choose. Great way to begin a morning, end the day, or begin a trip.
