Rome, day three: Ostia Antica.

Ostia is an archeological site of what used to be a harbour city in Ancient Rome. You can read more about Ostia Antica here — and I definitely recommend that you do, it’s a very interesting read.

We set off quite early in the morning on what we’d hoped would be the warmest and sunniest day of our stay in Rome.

First thing we saw when we got off the train was this nice place.

There were people working there, looking like they’ve just stepped straight out of Jurassic Park.

The first thing I noticed was how wonderful the air was. I don’t know if it was the pine trees or the grass but it was amazing.

I have no idea why I only took this one photo. But I remember that everything was delicious, including this pineapple.

Then we hopped on the train but instead of going back, we went a bit further on.

To the sea, to the sea!

Unfortunately, it got cloudy and windy when we got there. 😛

But we still enjoyed ourselves.

If you’re ever in Rome, I definitely recommend a trip to Ostia. It’s only about an hour by train and it’s definitely worth it.
