The Ostiense was born as industrial district in the first years of the 1900s. Up to a couple of years ago the city's main fruit and vegetable market was located here, but this has now been moved out of Rome which makes the area much quieter for residents. The whole area is now moving up-market thanks also to Rome's new university campus, Roma Tre. Ostiense is full of typical Roman restaurants, and prides itself on being one of the districts for the young. It has a railway station and subway and is well connected with the other areas of the city. This is an area of Rome where you get good value for money. Once one of the working class districts in Rome, the Garbatella is now enjoying something of a renaissance. Here pretty areas alternate with large cement buildings and a few parks or gardens. Situated behind the city's Roma Tre university, there are still some bargain prices to be found even though there is increasing interest among real estate agents in this zone. Even though it is situated between the Via Ostiense and Via Cristoforo Colombo, a big highway running from the modern suburb of EUR to the historic centre, public transport is not very good.
