Ostia Antica offers a glimpse into the past in a much quieter setting than Pompeii
This tour paints a captivating portrait that will take you back through the millennia to an unforgettable Roman Era
Leave the modern world behind as your English speaking tour guide will bring antiquities to life before your very eyes.
Listen as your guide provides a captivating account as you marvel at its theater, impressive temples, insula apartment blocks and the Forum of Corporations, where everything under the sun was bought and sold.
Be wowed by the great mosaic floors and several well preserved statues that seem to be, inappropriately, called “ruins”. In your Ostia Antica group tour there will be up to 14 participants or less. Small groups are indeed the best way to really enjoy the guided visit and to get the most from it.
In this huge archaeological site there are quite a few buildings that you can actually climb. For example, one of the highlights in this place is the 1st Century BC Theatre built by Marcus Agrippa that to this day can host 3.500 spectators at the same time. You can walk up to its top to have a gorgeous view of the ancient city from above. However on this walking tour we do not talk about only religious temples and ancient stores but it’ll actually be a colorful tour especially once you come across the ancient roman public toilets; the Latrines.
This tour is an eye-opening experience because you will understand how incredibly “modern” and “advanced” the ancient Romans were and how much of our modern daily lives are actually affected by them.
Traveling with an expert guide, you’ll visit all the best sites and learn to identify them for what they once were, making sense of plenty of structures.
This unique tour of Ancient Ostia departs from Rome by local train and you arrive at Ostia Antica in approximately 20 minutes.
