Itineraries to discover Lazio


From Rome you can plan some amazing day trips using cheap public transport ;) or if you prefer you can book a tour with departure from Rome... just have a look at our suggestions:

Ostia Antica

Visiting Lazio: Ancient Ostia

Photo by James Hills

The fourth-century before Christ ruined city and monumental area of Ostia antica is the old Harbour of the Romans. Ostia [Ostium = Foce = Mouth of the river] is Latin for "mouth", the mouth of the Tiber.
Actually the ancient Roman city of Ostia was situated at the mouth of the river Tiber, some 30 kilometers to the west of Rome. The archeological excavations undertaken at the beginning of the XIX century have brought the ancient city back to the surface, a witness to 900 years of Roman civilization.
The best way to reach Ostia from Rome is by coaching a bus because it is only a further 5 km away. You will find excavated ruins accessible from 9 am - 7 pm and during summer classic plays are staged on the Roman theatre.

Ticket Prices: € 4,00 full price – reduced price € € 2,00, closed Mondays.

Cerveteri

Visiting Lazio: Cerveteri

More ancient ruins can be found at Cerveteri, 44 kilometers away from Rome and built on a hill where the Etruscan town of Caere once stood. Its main attraction is the Etruscan necropolis about 2 kilometers out of town (open from 9 am - 6 pm, closed Mondays).
The many tombs here are amazing for their interior decorations, from mythological wall paintings to "the Tomb of Reliefs", which is an immaculate replica of an Etruscan home carved entirely out of stone.
To go to Cerveteri take a train from the Termini Station to the seaside town of Ladispoli, then catch a bus for Cerveteri itself or get a bus direct from Rome, on Via Lepanto.
The whole journey takes approximately one hour.
