Ostia Antica is a beautiful tour for children because the extensive ruins provide an excellent introduction to urban life of the early Romans: the theatre, the temples of Mithras, the Roman baths, laundries, restaurants and even the public toilets are still visible.
Ostia, the old Roman harbour city, was founded, according to the legend, by the fourth king of Rome in the 6th century BC. It developed into a busy commercial harbour city during imperial time and even today we can admire rich Roman houses from the 5th and 6th century.
Ostia Antica is an attractive location near the coast – a wonderful walk under umbrella pines and cypress trees.
