We did 2 tours with Marisa, Ancient Ostia and the Classic Rome Walking Tour. Both were wonderful. Marisa's background in archaeology and her love of classical Rome made both tours special. She selected sites well and did a very good job of making each site "come to life" by proving historical context and using mixed media to show how the sites looked when Rome was at its peak. Ancient Ostia is a hidden gem, less traveled by tourists and very evocative of its time - highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks James! I'm very happy that you've enjoyed Ancient Ostia walking tour, especially because I love this place and I'm trying to support something different from the classic Roman must-sees. Come back to Rome, I'm studying many new tours for History lovers like you and your father! Marisa
