Ostia was the oldest and main city port of the Ancient Roman Empire. Today, the archeological site is undoubtedly one of Italy’s most interesting and famous, as important as Pompeii.

Too often however, people do not come to Ostia. They spend all their energy and time focusing on the Vatican, the Forum, the Colosseum and few other places.

Ostia is truly worth a visit! It is like going back to the II century AD and living the everyday life of a Roman citizen by visiting the warehouses, the theater, the thermal baths, the luxurious villas and the more affordable condominiums, the hotels, the bars, the restaurants, the laundries and much more.

You will learn more from this tour about Ancient Roman customs and economics than in any other place in Italy.

Let me guide you through a fascinating journey back to the thriving heydays of Ostia, one of the best preserved Ancient cities in the world.
