Built in the early twentieth century,  Ostia was twinned with Rome in the Thirties, turning into a well-connected suburb of the capital where architects and engineers designed a series of modern buildings, piazzas and beach establishments.

In recent years a new Port has blossomed in Ostia with boats of every shape and size, a haven for sea travellers from all over the world to call in at Rome and enjoy all its wonders without  having forsake the benefits and attractions of the sea.
