Relive the Ancient Ostia: Private Half-Day Tour from Rome

Visit the remains of the ancient Roman town of Ostia Antica near central Rome with this private half-day tour. Walk through the excavations of this once lively harbor town founded in the 4th century BC. Ostia Antica is sometimes called the 'better Pompeii' because of the astonishing preservation of its buildings. You will stroll through ancient taverns, baths, apartments, groceries and theaters, and their present condition so strikingly exceeds that of the Roman Forum, Imperial Forum, and Pompeii that it seems a misnomer to call them ‘ruins.'

Ancient Ostia half day small group

Meet your tour guide at the ticket office of Ostia Antica archaeological site. You can get on site very easily by train. Enjoy a 3 hours walking tour of the first Roman colony: the port of Ostia is kind of a small Pompeii, but just 30 minutes away from Rome. In a peaceful natural landscape, animated by the pine umbrella trees, the ruins of Ostia still keep the memory of the frenetic activity that distinguished the port city. With your expert guide, walk along its main street, the so called Decumanus; immerse in the atmosphere of daily life in the ancient Roman Empire, visiting the theatre, wharehouses, apartment flats, thermal baths, mansions and taverns.
