Ostia, the place where the romans got ot take a bath. I wouldnt do so, because the beach there is mostly overcrowded and spoiled.
I would rather suggest, to visit the area of ancient Ostia, the former harbour of Rome. You can see there big parts of the former city preserved, sometimes with walls still several meters high. You can wolc in places that make you feel yourself in 300 AD. If you have some time in Rome, you can easily get here, it's like a half-day program, but really worth the effort especially if you like such kind of things.
