One of Lazio's prize sights, the ruins of ancient Ostia are wonderfully complete, like a smaller version of Pompeii...
With so much to see in Rome, it can be hard to tear yourself away from the city. But venture out into the surrounding Lazio region and you’ll discover that there are a whole host of historic sites and foodie hotspots to explore. Further afield, Florence, Naples and Pompeii are all within day-trip range of the capital.
One of the easiest outings from Rome is a day trip to the Scavi Archeologici di Ostia Antica. Like a smaller version of Pompeii, this engrossing archaeological site showcases the remarkably well-preserved ruins of ancient Rome’s sea port.
