Rome. Day 6 - Ostia Antica


Rome's original port. It has survived over 2000 years and is massive. A lot bigger than we all thought.

The day started with a trip from Termini to Piramidi and then the very hot and packed train to Ostia Antica. There is very little there except the vast ruins.



Some of the building are very well preserved or have been restored.



The girls were suffering again in the July heat. The train journey took a lot out of them before we got here..



They don't make kids like they used too. This generation prefer air-conditioning and a permanent connection to the Internet.



I am convinced I have been to this place before when I last visited rome back when I was13. It just seemed all so familiar to me..

The day ended with a similar hot train journey back to Rome.

Dinner at a restaurant near the hotel and a very large beer was all that was needed to refresh me.

You should have had the beer first and sent the Girls to an air conditioned shopping centre
