It is peaceful, beautiful, easy to get around, (much easier than Pompeii), and there are few visitors. I had a wonderful day.
coming from the Termini train station – take the “linea B” metro, get off at Porta San Paolo (Piramide) – Take the train Roma-Lido, get off at Ostia Antica; continue straight ahead for about 5 minutes to the entrance to Ostia Antica.

The archaeological staff member kindly allowed me to take her photo. The third picture in this set shows the terracotta conduits in the Caldarium through which hot air traveled to heat the room.
The picture below shows the fish market!
This is the Castle of Pope Julius II (to the right) (late 1400AD) and the Santa Aurea church (300AD) both of which are outside of the ancient site but close by in the village.
