  • Tour with Ana

An Amazing, often overlooked Destination for Lovers of Antiquity, right in Rome’s backyard

Forty minutes outside Rome’s city center is Ostia, founded in 640 BCE at the mouth of the Tiber. Once Rome’s commercial seaport and an important military base, it has been buried for centuries by silting – in fact it is now 3 km from the sea. Ostia is remarkably well preserved. If you can’t see Pompeii, Ostia is an excellent choice for its magnificent monuments, buildings, frescoes and mosaics. You’ll experience Roman times when Ostia was a working port and later when it became a getaway for the Roman elite. Sites include the necropolis, numerous baths, the Capitol, Forum, Square of Corporations, thermopolium (ancient restaurant!), etc.
