These pictures are all old but I wanted to save them.
I have always had contrasting feelings for Ostia.
I won’t tell you which phase I am living now!
Maybe good and bad are always intertwined in this place!
I only know that the sea changes everything, here like anywhere else.
I don’t remember these specific moments but I do remember the surprise, the fascination, the state of mind…
I cannot conceive my life without the sea, not for long periods, it never lasts!
Ostia is known as “the sea of Rome” .
And for its proximity with the hopefully more known version, Ostia Antica (Ancient Ostia), where Romans have built their largest port.
I would never recommend it for bathing but it always offers amazing views.
“Never judge a book by its cover” that is valid on multi levels!
