Private driving tour to the archaeological site of Ancient Ostia

Meet your private driver and tour guide directly at your hotel in Rome. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy a pleasant sightseeing of Rome on your way to the archaeological area of Ancient Ostia. Your private, knowledgeable tour guide will keep you entertained and tell you interesting facts during your day trip.

Upon arrival, travel back in time and enjoy a unique tour by an expert guide who will be your story-teller during this instructive and entertaining experience.

Marvel at the incredibly well-preserved ruins and mosaics of this ancient harbour-town, which was founded in the 4th century BC and that has nothing to envy to the well-known area of Pompeii.

Walking through the ruins in the scavi you will learn that Ostia was once one of the main Roman cities - a thriving commercial center of 60,00 people - thanks to its position and the presence of the harbour.
Moreover, you will have the chance to really understand how an ancient Roman city must have looked like and how its inhabitants lived nearly 2,000 years ago.

Follow your tour guide through the remains of ancient houses, taverns, baths, apartments and groceries. Walking along the main road, the Decumanus Maximus, you will see buildings from the Republic and the Imperial age. Then, stop at the theater, one of the oldest brick theaters in the world, which is still used for concerts today.

Eventually, rejoin your driver and head back to your hotel in Rome.
