Ostia. Ancient city in the surroundings of Rome. Private guided tour


Ostia Antica was the the harbour city of ancient Rome, which is approximately 25 km to the east. Ostia is Rome's best preserved seaport, but, due to silting and a drop in sea level, the site now lies 3 km from the sea. The site is noted for the excellent preservation of its ancient buildings. Amazingly beautiful archeological park with no crowds Ostia Antica tour grants a live experience of Ancient Roman city life. We will trek the same ancient streets that were once bustling with sailors and merchants from all corners of the Roman Empire bringing back to life the history of the crowded taverns, baths and theatre.
