Jump on a train from Rome and head 30kms west to explore the archaeological ruins of Rome's ancient harbour city, Ostia Antica on this 3-hour private tour.
Meet your expert, local guide at the Ostia Antica ticket office, and begin your guided walking tour of the ancient city.
As you walk around, you'll notice it's a ghost town, but it was once a thriving port city. Learn how the ruins were discovered after being buried for 10 centuries as you follow a labyrinth of old streets and alleyways. Visit the thermal Baths of Neptune and admire the black and white mosaics, see the large reconstructed theater and the forum, which was once where the inhabitants gathered and socialised.
This tour will take you on a journey back in time and give you a glimpse at what life was like when Ostia was one of the ancient world's most important ports.
