This is a truly brilliant archaeological site full of building foundations and walls, showing the lives of the people living in the town. It shows all aspects of life, a "shopping Centre", amphitheatre, forum and lots of buildings of every use, for both rich and poor. It's vast, so allow a day to visit if you can (we did over 22,000 steps or strides that day!). The site is well preserved and easy to walk around on the roman basalt roads. Some buildings are standing to two floors. Ostia Antica is a half hour metro ride from Rome and a very short walk from the station to the site. There is only one restaurant and it's quite a way into the site, so best take a picnic. Alternatively, turn right out of the station and the village is a couple of minutes away. We found a fantastic cafe to have our lunch - L'Alimentari. We stayed until closing time at 7.30 pm. Entrance fee 6.50 Euros for adults, under 18s are FREE!
