Ostia Things to Do

  • Beach

    This couple enjoyed the services of an outstanding masseuse right there on their lounge chair - sea breeze blowing - sun warm but not hot. Life is GOOD at the beach in Rome! 5 Euro for just your back - 10 Euro for full body massage!

  • Piazza Umberto

    Here in the quiet Piazza Umberto you will find residences, the Church and frequent art festivals on the weekends. People visiting Ostia Antica ruins often miss this delightful area of Ostia - right there by the ruins.

There are many beach exits. The Ostia center exit takes you to the private beaches. We prefer to go to the end exit Cristoforo Colombo where it is less...

  • Swim in the Tyrannian

    You are on the Tyrannian sea here - not especially clean but most people enjoy the water. It is very salty and, personally, I prefer swimming in the many pristine lakes around Rome.

    This guy was out in the surf for a good part of the day - gathering whatever in his homemade net. Fascinating!
