Located on the left river side of the Tiber, just 20 kilometers from the city of Rome, Ostia Antica was the main port of Rome founded in the 4th century B.C. to facilitate control on navigation from the Mediterranean sea.
The ruins remains equal only to that of Pompeii and represent an extraordinary document of the intense daily life of its inhabitants, mainly merchants which numbered about 50.000 during its most florid period under the Empire.
This excursion we lead you to the major monumental complex of Ostia Antica such as the theatre, the Baths of Neptune, temples and mythreums and several of the insulae (apartment complex) together with numerous curiosities testifying to the daily life of the city.
You won’t believe how undiscovered this place is
