When the heat becomes unbearable, many go to the seaside. Going to the sea in Rome means going to Ostia. The Lido di Ostia is the closest seaside resort to the capital and it is the most popular among Romans. There are many beach operators, hotels, restaurants and sailing clubs.
People also go to Ostia in winter for its nightlife when looking for a change from the city.
The Lido is easy to reach both by car and by train. From the Piramide Station, there is a direct train that connects Rome with the Lido di Ostia. Service runs daily from 5:18 am to 11:30 pm, after which the train is substituted by the number 3 coach. During peak periods, there are 12 buses per hour. The average total travel time is about 37 minutes.
Ostia had a new port built a few years ago, which is situated at the mouth of Rome’s Tiber River. The Port accepts boats of all sizes, thereby offering travellers from all over the world the possibility of disembarking in Rome and enjoying its marvels without abandoning the charm of the sea.
