Wonderful pictures.


The best thing for me is the classical buildings...The train looks good too...And the part of the beach seems it needs a bit of painting and cleaning...It can happen in some places of any country including Spain...Great thread.

great photos of Ostia. I know about this city by name but my first time to see some photos.
Ostia Antica is a gem.

Romes apparent complete lack of modern skyscrapers is nothing short of disturbing!
Rome is a ruined city!

Ostia Antica was great. Hard to imagine that this was once an important sea port. Lido di Ostia on the other hand, is not exactely the greatest resort town. And a bit too far from central Rome to explore the classic metropolis. Like we did...

If you weren't an ignorant hater, you would know about the EUR, the ideal-city for the 1942 EXPO, masterpiece of the rationalist architecture, built in the late '30s, and later expanded in the 50's.

(Sorry Benoine for bursting into your thread)

And besides, entire countries can only dream to have the "ruins", the lifestyle, the cultural events and food tradition contained in 5 blocks of Rome.

I think Scrapebook was just kidding.

We passed Eur almost every day on our way from Ostia to the center. We never stopped there because our time was limited.

No he's not, he's entering any thread about Rome suggesting that the city is "overrated" and a "city of ruins". It's true that Rome needs to improve its infrastrcutures, but simply pointing out the absence of skyscrapers as a proof of the city being not so interesting is very stupid.

Lovely pictures!

Did you get to visit Palatino (the hill where Rome was founded)? It is without a doubt the most serene place in Rome, and probably one of the most bucolic of places in the whole world out of all the places I've ever been to in my life.

more pictures pls.

we're going to Rome ( and Pisa, Florence and Venice) in December 1, 2013 and have been excitedly reading up on rome (and those cities mentioned).

we're concerned with the much publicized crime rate but then manila is also famous for such lol.

Just watch out for pickpockets in the touristic areas and on public transport.

We didn't have any problem with crime, but we never had anywhere so far.

Well, this is an old thread, so I'm afraid I'm a bit out of pictures...

Well yes, I remember now. Great and intriguing historic site, but less photogenic than other ruins in Rome. So maybe that's why I didn't post any pictures of Palatino before.
I've found this one on my server:
