Hi all. We've now moved on from Rome. Tonight we find ourselves in Taormina, located at the foot of Mt Etna in Sicily. But more on that later.
Our final day in Rome saw us once again make our way out into the rural areas (if you can call 30 odd Kms rural), to the ancient site of Ostia Antica. I will not bore you will a lesson in history (but if you want to check out its significance, might I suggest Wikipedia).
Most of the ruins date back between the 4th Century BC and the 2nd Century CE. Again, we won't bore you with a multitude of photos. However, most impressive was the mosaic floors; most of them were comprised of tiles not even an inch square. Hopefully the photos below will do some justice.
Following our excursion, and considering we were cooked from another hot day, we made our way down to the beach for,a relaxing afternoon.
An added bonus for the day was our meal. We've really struggled to find a great restaurant for tea in Rome. We've had some good ones, but not a brilliant one. We scored a hit with our last dinner in Rome.
