If you have a day in Rome to spend on an itinerary a little off the beaten track, then we have just the ticket: Itinerary: Museo Della Via Ostiense to the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls.

The Via Ostiense, the road from Rome to Ostia, starts at a gatehouse that's turned into a free museum of the Via. It's right next to the Pyramid of Gaius Cestius, another of those old Roman Ruins that aren't all that ruined. Then a half-hour walk (or short metro ride) brings you to one of Rome's primary basilicas, one that was Rome's largest until St. Peter's was built, Basilica San Paolo Fuori le Mure.
