Full description
Discover some of Ostia Antica’s most impressive features, such as the Baths of Neptune, which house an impressively preserved mosaic of Neptune, the God of the sea. Next, make your way through the Forum of Corporations, which was the center of commerce and trade in Rome during the time of Emperor Augustus. Continue onto the impressive Ostia Antica Amphitheater, which once held up to 3,500 onlookers, and hear about the events that used to be held here and the rich history of the site. Retrace the steps of history and listen to your guide bring the past to life as you learn how advanced the Roman Empire was in both commerce and engineering, and how it helped shaped modern times. Peak into ancient storefronts, and witness how the Romans managed to have complex systems bringing both hot and cold water into their buildings. This small-group tour gives you a deeper understanding of the network that helped foster the success of the iconic Roman Empire, and how this major trade site allowed Rome to feed its ever-increasing population. Ostia Antica is an archaeological wonder that will leave you educated and impressed, it is surely not a sight to be missed.

    What to bring

    • Passport or ID card

    Know before you go

    • When you book a Small Group Tour, you are guaranteed one tour guide per group of 6 people. Please bear in mind, however, that in order to accommodate families and friends traveling together, we do on rare occasion make the exception of adding an additional one to two guests in order to not split the groups of those that are together. On that same note, you may very well find yourself on tour with less than six people
    • As we accept bookings in multiples of six, math doesn’t always work in our favor to help accommodate individual travellers and their families when on the same tour, so we hope you understand and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause

    Seeing Ostia Antica with a guide is the only way to go. Our guide, Ariana, was so knowledgeable and shared so much more than we could have read on the signs on our own. I loved that she answered all of our questions. She helped us call a taxi after our tour and suggested a great restaurant in Ostia along the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Our experience was amazing!
