Ancient Ostia Half-Day Trip from Rome
- Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
- Hotel pickup included
- Led by a local guide
Your visit to Ostia Antica (ancient Ostia) starts at Via delle Tombe, which leads you to the Porta Romana, one of the city's three gates. This is the beginning of the Decumanus Maximus, the main thoroughfare that crosses the city from north-east to south-west.
You will then arrive at the Terme di Nettuno, where you can admire the beautiful black and white mosaics representing Neptune and Amphitrite, the theatre built by Agrippa, and the Forum which formed the center of the city. Here you will discover the main public buildings, Il Capitolium, the temple of Rome and Augustus, the Basilica and the large thermal baths.
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.

Wonderful, interesting tour. Excellent guide who knew the history of the area well. Great time of day --- early in the morning on a Sunday, before the hordes of other tourists arrived. Added to my knowledge of Italy and Rome. Would have liked more time there, will need to return. Enjoyed ride to the site. Return a little longer than anticipated as folks dropped off at their hotels rather than the morning central meeting place.
