  • Outdoor Activities: "Keep in mind that the park is closed on Mondays."
  • Historic Sites: "To get there, you'll want to hop on the Metro B line (direction Laurentina) and get off at the Piramide stop. Once you've gotten off at the stop, you'll need to look for and follow the signs that read 'ROMA-LIDO'. The good thing is that your bus pass  allows you to travel on this line at no extra charge. This train typically runs every 15 minutes or so. Once you hop on the train, it will take you about 30 minutes to reach Ostia Antica. Make sure you get off at the 7th stop which is called 'Ostia Antica.' Once you get off at the Ostia Antica stop, as you exit the station, you'll cross the pedestrian bridge until you reach a parking lot. Here you'll need to make a left and almost immediately, you'll see the entrance to the Ostia Antica archaeological park. To get in the park, you'll need to pay €6,50 for a ticket. Keep in mind though, that the park is closed on Mondays."
  • Best for Outdoor Activities Because: Ostia Antica offers ruins and relics that are just as intact and unique as Pompeii and is located just out of the city.
  • Best for Historic Sites Because: Take a break from the city center and step back to the 4th century BC at the ruins of Ostia Antica.
