Out of town


When in Rome with a car you don't want to use it in the city, as the traffic there is more than a bit chaotic and parking next to impossible. On the other hand a car becomes very much handy when you want to explore the surroundings. We took a quick trip to Ostia to see Ostia Antica, the old port of imperial Rome, but in Italy Mondays are not for visiting museums; they are (nearly) all closed that day. So the day was spent on exploring modern Ostia and Porto di Roma instead. This cat had the right idea about how to spend the warm summer day.
