What to Expect

Head out of Rome toward the sea on this educational and entertaining half-day morning Ostia Antica tour, the ancient Roman ruins that lay just outside of the city. Ostia was once a flourishing port and business center until it was eventually abandoned after the barbarian invasions. Stroll around these well-preserved ruins with your guide learning about what daily life was like here 1,400 years ago.

Begin at the Via della Tombe heading toward one of the three gates to Ostia Antica (Ancient Ostia), Porta Romana. Stroll down Decumanus Maximus, the central thoroughfare that goes across Ostia. From there arrive at Terme di Nettuno, where you’ll see intricate mosaics representing Neptune and Amphitrite. The oldest archeological remains that have been discovered are from the third or fourth century B.C. Learn about the history of the place from your knowledgeable guide and seek out some of the oldest ruins there.

See the ruins of theaters and public baths, forums and former residences. Near the Forum square you will also find the House of Diana and the Thermopolium, an ancient Roman bar with a marble counter and a fresco depicting the fruit and foodstuffs that were sold there. At the end of Via dei Dipinti, a museum displays some of the ancient sculptures unearthed at Ostia.

After a while, head back to the Eternal City having seen a historic swath of ruins that are hard to come by in Rome.
