Ancient Ostia Tour

PRIVATE DRIVING GUIDED TOUR 

Just outside Rome, near the sea, Ostia is one of the largest excavated Ancient cities in the world. It used to be the main seaport of the Roman Empire, the gateway to Rome for the grains, the marble and other important products that were imported by sea from Egypt, Spain and other rich provinces.

We offer you a private customized visit of the most spectacular monuments and sights of Ostia on our comfortable and air conditioned Sedan/Van with a licenced Rome guide.

 This tour will give us the opportunity to discover the real Ostia, a smaller version of “Pompeii” as it was commonly called by the Roman people. We will be able to admire one of the largest cities constructed during epic Rome.

Ostia Antica, the Ancient Port of Rome, the best preserved ancient Roman town, with its Emporium and the residential area. Ostia was the first Roman colony and became very soon a river port with a commercial function to supply Rome with food and even a strategic military function as naval base. Visit the districts of the river port with its cults and religious buildings, houses and spas with mosaics and pictorial remains.

Want to get a glimpse of the Ancient Roman life? visit the remains of apartments, an ancient fast food, spa, warehouses, villas, a launderette, temples and a marvelous theater – come with us to Ostia and see life as it was 2000 years ago!

You will see the Forum, the Baths, the Capitolium, the Small Market and the fishmongers’ shops. Along the “Decumanus” (one of the main streets) you will explore the commercial soul of Ostia with its public buildings, the huge Piazzale delle Corporazioni (Square of the Guilds), taverns various places of production like the very interesting “Fulloniche” (Fuller’s workshops). Houses and “modern buildings” in Ostia Antica. Moreover, near Porta Marina you’ll find sepulchral monuments.
