Best Ruins Tour in Italy

Travel back in time to Rome as it was in 200 AD on your private, half-day Ostia Antica tour. Known as "the better Pompeii", Ostia Antica offers a fascinating insight into life in the Roman empire.

Once we arrive, you will be on the spot where the Tiber River and sea intersected, Ostia Antica served as Rome's main port. Toga-clad Romans would have been bustling through the streets you see today, working to protect the main city or to receive the olive oil, wine, grain, and other treasures from the far-flung points of the Empire. Many others, though, were simply here holidaying. In fact, the same characteristics that tempted ancient Romans to vacation in Ostia still apply, from the cool sea breezes to the tranquility, making Ostia Antica the perfect escape from Rome even today!


We can depart from your location at a time of your choice and head towards the city of Ostia to visit the ruins. The touring time starts from your pickup location and will end upon your return to the same location.

A Recent Review of this tour

Picked up at Rome airport and short drive to Ostia. Attica ruins. We were given a knowledgeable tour of the history and transition of these fabulous Roman Empire ruins. After we exhausted our list of questions we were delivered to our hotel in Naples which is a couple of hours down the coast. Due to our distant lodging the trip was costly but it was a once in a lifetime experience with memories to last a lifetime.
