Rome: Ostia Antica Private Guided Tour

1. Rome: Ostia Antica Private Guided Tour

Discover the preserved archaeological remains of Ostia Antica, founded in the 4th century BC, and once home to more than 100,000 Roman citizens.

Get an idea of what Roman cities were like at that time, how they lived, and what they did every day. You will live a "real day in ancient Rome."

Rome: Immersive Underground and Piazzas Tour

2. Rome: Immersive Underground and Piazzas Tour

Immerse yourself in the city's history starting from Piazza Navona, one of the most charming and popular squares in Rome. The most beautiful parts of Piazza Navona are its three fountains, designed during the papacy of Gregory XIII. Erected in the center of Piazza Navona, the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi was designed by Bernini in 1651. After a look over Piazza Navona, you'll enter into the subterranean world beneath the streets of this square which is built over the site of the Stadium of Domitian. The stadium was used almost entirely for athletic contests, and for a brief period following fire-damage to the Colosseum in 217 A.D., it was used for gladiator shows. From the Stadium of Domitian you will go back on the street to move onward to the Pantheon. According to Roman legend, this is the place where at his death, the founder of Rome, Romulus, was seized by an eagle and taken off into the skies with the gods. From the Pantheon to the Secret Bath of Neptune you will have just the time to take a breath before entering into the Basilica of Neptune, built in Rome by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa in honor of Neptune. Next, travel to the Trevi Fountain and throw a coin in the water, adhering to tradition. Following the fountain, you'll enter into the subterranean world of Vicus Caprarius, also known as the City of Water. In this underground archaeological area of Vicus Caprarius you will find an intricate labyrinth of ancient remains: the remains of a domus of the imperial era; the castellum aquae of the Aqua Virgo aqueduct.

Rome: Ostia Antica Private Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line

3. Rome: Ostia Antica Private Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line

Have a walk through the Roman ruins in the old town of Ostia Antica, a small Pompeii just a few kilometers away from Rome. Discover the history of a settlement that can be traced back to the beginning of the 4th century B.C., which served as a military outpost to control not only access to the Tiber but also its lower course and nearby areas, in order to defend Rome. After meeting your guide, skip the entrance lines to explore Ostia, the first Roman colony. Hear about its role as a river port that acquired a commercial function to supply Rome with foodstuffs, particularly wheat, even if its strategic military function as a naval base certainly prevailed.  Learn about how the city was later surrounded by a new circle of walls that circumscribed an urban area of about 50 hectares, divided into five regions or neighborhoods. While there, see Neptune's Thermal Baths, the theatre, the forum, the House of Diana, and more.

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 4 reviews

Tour scheduled for 10am, we arrived 10 minutes in advance, but the guide (Valéria) and the agency coordinator (Paolo) were already waiting for us. Both very professional, helpful and attentive. We know the sights provided for in the ad with an extra touch. Always with a lot of patience, the guide talked about the monuments and their history and still maintained the interest of our children throughout the period (after all, 3 hours is enough time to be able to entertain a 10 year old child and a 15 year old teenager) !

Good and varied leadership

Good and varied tour with a knowledgeable guide, with good but not very good knowledge of German.
