If you go to see the ballet, since there are really few words so it becomes impossible to understand the story without preparation.

“It's a classic bar and the oldest and most famous of Ostia. It has no special food or drink but coffee it's very good. what very important is that it's at the centre of Ostia and in this square and the streets around it you can find bars for aperitif (Sisto Bar makes aperitif too), shops, ice-cream shops and other after dinner sweets like crepes or Krapfen which you can find in the Krapfen bar in front of Sisto. They are very good and famous for breakfast in the Alps but apparently someone moved from there and started making them in Ostia because they're just as good”

“1 pm: Climb to the terrace of the Vittoriano for a coffee with a perfect view of the Roman forum. Built in honor of Italy’s first king, the notable white building is the best perch for secretly gazing out at the rooftops of downtown Rome, as well as catching a glimpse of the Colosseum.”

“Entering the huge archeological site of the Roman Forum and strolling through the ruins, you can almost imagine the citizens of Ancient Rome. Of course, it helps to have a guide who can bring the stories to life. The site dates back to around 500 B.C. but was later enlarged. In fact, you’ll see remnants of Imperial Rome extending beyond the limits of the Forum to include Trajan’s Column, the Arch of Titus, and the Circus Maximus, just to name a few. After visiting the Forum, try your luck with the Bocca della Verità, an ancient stone carving of a bearded man’s face. According to myth, it will bite off the hand of anyone not telling the truth”
