Day 2: Rome on foot, Ostia Ruins, and Basilica San Paolo Fuori Le Mura

My favorite hobby is walking – far-and-away, without a doubt, it’s my favorite thing to do. I would walk the entire world if I could. I like to wander and get lost. I end up seeing so many things I wouldn’t have if I always decided where to go and followed that plan.

I encountered a lot of interesting architectural details, had pizza and aranciata for lunch, and also found a bunch of graffiti that makes me want to understand more about Italian culture.

Then I headed to the ruins of Ostia Antica, a harbor city of Ancient Rome. I would have taken more pictures, but my battery got really low.

On the way back to the hotel, I decided to get off the train a stop early and I went to the Basilica of St. Paul (Basilica San Paolo Fuori Le Mura).
