  • Absolutely magical experience To have time and space to wander the Roman roads, seeing houses, shops, offices , baths as well as a bar and toilets! There was so much to see, it was overwhelming...

  • Wow, what a treat! In some ways better than Pompeii (esp. with no real crowds). Amazingly preserved bones of this Roman city, with a great theater, fascinating paved marketplace with great mosaics.....  more

  • It's amazing. When you walk through this place you can feel the old roman history. You can see all in one place like as temple for Gods, Basilica for Christians, Theatre, Bath, Multi storied old luxurious residence, beautiful open place, fresh air etc etc. Overall i loved it. I will go again to explore more. This site is huge. Single visit is not enough to see everything.
  • Such a great place with lots of mosaic floors! Far from the madding crowds of the more touristy attractions and an easy train ride from Rome. It is very big and there are lots of buildings to explore. They don't supply a guide when you buy your ticket but you can use their app (or research it before your visit and download a nap off the internet). Plan to be there the whole day between seeing Ostia Antica and also exploring the town around it.
