Full description
Journey back in time to the days of the Roman Empire on a half-day tour of Ostia Antica, the ancient harbor city that once served Ancient Rome. Journey by train from the "Eternal City" in less than 20 minutes, accompanied by an expert guide. Then, explore an archaeological site said by many to be more beautiful - and certainly less crowded - than Pompeii.

Located at the "mouth" of the River Tiber, Ostia was the gateway (and gate keeper) of Rome in ancient times. Learn the history of the city and its importance to the Roman Republic. Hear how grains from Sicily, marble from Africa, slaves from Asia and wine from Spain were all processed in the port city on their way to Rome.

See ancient shops that remain intact, such as a fish shop with its stunning mosaics. Discover one of the best preserved Roman theaters in the world, still used for occasional performances to this day. Marvel at the monuments of the Capitolium at the very heart of public life in the city. Enter the private houses of former citizens, and enjoy the green and pleasant surroundings. A restaurant and cafe is located inside the park for your convenience when you want a break from history!
