Tour description

Do you have a keen interest in Ancient Rome? Did you love your visit to the Roman Forum and want to find out more about Ancient Roman Civilization with the help of an engaging private guide who is an expert in this period? Take advantage of Rome’s close proximity to Ancient Ostia, known as Ostia Antica in Italian, and choose an exciting half-day trip to ‘Rome’s Pompeii.’

For our Ancient Ostia Day Trip, you will have a fully-licensed private guide and a private driver with luxury car or minivan at your complete disposal for 4 hours. You will be picked up from your hotel or apartment in central Rome, ready to depart on a day trip to the fascinating site of Ancient Ostia.

In Ostia you will visit the beautifully preserved archaeological site of Ancient Ostia (Ostia Antica) accompanied by an entertaining private guide who is an expert in classical civilization. The ruins of Ancient Ostia date back to the 2nd Century and are still marvelously intact today. You will walk along the original Roman roads and admire ancient Roman temples, squares, baths, houses…it will be like stepping into a time machine and going back through the centuries!

Our private guide will be able to tell you all about life in the Ancient Roman period. You will learn how Ancient Romans used to live and what they used to eat. You will also learn all about the port town of Ancient Ostia and the relationship it had with Rome politically, religiously and geographically.

With a private guide by your side you won’t feel as though you are wandering aimlessly through a series of ruins but as though you are actually walking through a town built 2000 years ago. Your guide will be able to paint with their words and also use pictures and 3D overlay books to bring the ruins back to life. Having a private guide for your Ancient Ostia Day Trip, you will be able to ask as many questions as you like of the many curiosities that are bound to spring to mind!

If you are a family with children, just let us know and we will provide you a child-friendly guide who will use the iPad or other interactive tools to keep your children engaged, as they learn all about Ancient Rome and how the ruins would have once looked. Ancient Ostia is the perfect location for a family trip!
