When visiting Rome, Italy, travelers should follow the example of the emperor and the pope, and see some of the surrounding countrysides.
Fuori Parta (outside the gates), such as Ancient Rome noted, lie treasures. The surrounding area of Rome, Lazio region, is one of the most beautiful areas of Italy in itself, and those who travel outside the gates of the city of Rome will certainly be in for a special treat.

In the east of Rome (about half an hour by train) is Ostia Antica, a site that is considered "Pompeii of Rome." Once the site of an ancient Roman port, this region lost its importance when the Tiber River changed course, leaving it (about 2,000 years later) sandy, muddy.
Travelers exploring Ostia Antica, however, can gain a better understanding of what life was like in ancient times by exploring the excavation and accompanying museum.
Another place worth the journey to on a day trip from Rome is Tivoli. In ancient times, Tivoli is a place where the emperor went to escape the heat and misery of Roman life in the summer.
Great palaces and villas were created, but with the Middle Ages, this area has been abandoned. Rediscovered by the elite of the Catholic Church, the cardinal and the pope with abundant riches, who revived the area with a new build.
