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 tour! We had an early morning pickup at our hotel and wonderful guide, Chiarra. We arrived at Ostia Antica early before the crowds and it was very peaceful so we could walk amongst the ruins and enjoy all the sights. Our guide was most informative and since it was a small group we had lots of individual attention.

A most interesting and fascinating tour in regard to the history of Rome outside of the actual city. Very well preserved and cared for relics.
