A wonderful apartment completely renewed and with all comforts. Here, you can relax, go to the beach, and easily join Rome. Ostia is one of Lazio's major attractions, particularly interesting to those who can't make it to Pompeii. Italy might be a Catholic country, but you won't detect any religious conservatism in the skimpy bikinis on display here. There's a carnival atmosphere, with dance halls, cinemas, and pizzerias. The Lido is set off best at Castelfusano, against a backdrop of pinewoods. Not far from the centre of Rome, it's considered the Capital's beach and it is also well-known for the 'Tourist Port' with moorings for boats from 8 to 60 metres in length. There's no time to describe it, it's time to visit it. The apartment is on the first fllor, has been completely renewed and has a living room with sofabed, 2 bedrooms (one with doublebed, one with two single beds which can also be prepared as doublebed, if you request it), one full bathroom and a little kitchen. Very large and green terrace, for your dining 'al fresco'. If you come with the car there is a private parking for you.
If you tire of geeking out at Rome ruins why not hit the surf? The heart of modern-day Ostia is one of the most popular beach daytrips among Romans during the summer months. Lungomare Paolo Toscanelli runs along the waterfront; stroll along here and you’ll be able to quickly assess your beachgoing options. There are two types of beaches, public and club or private. Both kinds are in fact accessible to visitors, but you have to pay to access private beaches. Typical entry is about €4-5 at the bigletterie by the beaches’ main gates. The premium gets you a less crowded beach with better facilities (more bathrooms, etc.) and a more upscale clientele. However, you can enjoy the same dark sand and warm sea for free if you skip a few meters over to a public beach. Some free beaches are marked “ ingresso libero ” (free entry) at the gate; others are unmarked but don’t have a ticket counter. Lido di Ostia is joined to rome with a train line: At the Ostinse metro line station, at the top of the stairs, turn left and follow signs to Ferrovia Roma-Lido. Your Metro ticket includes the train ride to Lido Centro (35min., every 15min. daily 5:40am-11:30pm).
Ostia Antica is the old Harbour of the Romans. Visiting Ostia is like visiting Tivoli and Hadrian's villa: a relaxing trip that takes you away from the noise and incessant police-sirens of Rome. Ostia was originally developed as a sea port, prior to the silting up of the Tiber's estuary. Ostia increased in importance from the fourth century BC, becoming a major naval and trading base. As Rome's port, the town had obvious commercial significance, and expanded in size and grandeur to match this position. There are impressive mosaics and columns everywhere (statues are mostly taken away for safekeeping), but highlights include the smaller domestic details: the fishmonger's marble slab, the bar with its wares illustrated on the wall, the communal public toilets.
