A visit to Ostia Antica is well worth a day trip. You can expect a lot of walking, but the sights are spectacular and there is so much to experience. If you take the Metro and the train to get there, you will also be rewarded with a chance to see a real pyramid. Take a few minutes and walk over to it on your way back to Rome.
What To See & Do:
Walk straight along Via della Stazione di Ostia Antica until you reach the parking lot. The entrance is to the left.
Where To Stay:
Steven Ward founded 10 Minute Travel in 2006. He wanted to create a website that would focus on interesting sights and attractions. The website has seen several changes over the years. Steve is a retired Coast Guard Officer who has worked in the IT field after leaving the service. He has been all over Alaska on ships, sailed through the Panama Canal, stopped in Jamaica and Aruba, and gone on a handful of trips to Europe and Asia. Taiwan, Japan, and Thailand were some of the more recent trips overseas. If there is a vaccine for the travel flu bug, he will refuse it. 🙂
