We visited Ostia Antica on the first Sunday of the month when it was free to get in. We managed to get from Rome city centre out to the site so easily and it only cost us a couple of euros on the train.
This Roman site is huge with most impressive remains. The original Roman road through the site is a mile long which indicates the size of the area open to the public. There are explanatory boards outside most buildings in Italian and English though at some...More
My wife and I visited this site with a small group of people, and a local historical guide. The incredible work done to unearth this slice of Roman history is an epic achievement. I would recommend anyone that likes history, commerce, urbanization, and civilization visit...More
We visited Ostia Antica so we could get out of the hustle and bustle of the city.
Definitely worth a visit, especially if you don’t want to do the long trek to Pompeii.
We chose to do the trip on our own and not with...More
Anyone who is interested in ancient Roman history should definitely visit this place. Only 25 minutes away from central Rome by train and you can easily spend several hours there. Nice cafe there too if you want to grab lunch or a drink. Quite open...More
When I planned my vacation to Rome, I also booked a guided tour (City Wonders) to Ostia Antica. Frankly, at the time of booking, I was not absolutely convinced this site would be worth wasting almost an entire day, because I had never heard of...More

It is really big. It's essentially the size of a town......More

I seem to remember seeing some taxis at the train station but in order to get to Ostia Antica site from the station you have to walk up and over a bridge and then It's a 5 min walk down to the entrance which would be a better place to call for a taxi.I don't recall seeing any taxis there. Perhaps ask for a return when you get the taxi out to Ostia. There is also a good cafeteria inside the site should you need to eat and drink.
