places to see other than Rome

hi where going to see our Daughter for a very quick visit in July. She is working at fabulous caravan park 8 km from Ostia Antica which I've never heard off

We will have two full days and a small car . Hopefully she'll be able to get one or both of these days off if she does I thought it would be nice to go somewhere for the day. We are going to come back latter in the year to do Rome and the sites and our daughter regularly goes into Rome with friend she's also done Naples. I know I'm asking a lot but is there anyone that know the area that might be able to surggest anywhere local that might be nice to go for the day. My daughter says there's nothing around the site so thought with having the car it might be nice to take her somewhere a nice village beach or town nothing busy like Rome. if need be we can spend the two days on site but thought people may be able to come up with something

I would head to the Castelli Romani villages for lake views and wine, or to Circeo or Sperlonga for beaches. Or maybe Tivoli for ancient stunning Villas.

A second vote for Tivoli - Villa D'Este and Parco Gregoriana are both beautiful, and something a bit different from Ostia Antica, in case she's maxed out on Roman Ruins. :)

The hill villages of the Castelli Romani would make a nice change and easier with a car from the Ostia area.

If the beach beckons then Sperlonga or Gaeta are lovely, certainly better than the beaches at Ostia:
