Ancient Ostia offers the opportunity to walk along the streets of an ancient city of Roman period, quite similar to Pompeii but much more closer and more easily accesible from Rome.

Ostia was once a city of 50,000 people. The city boasted a complex infrastructure of warehouses, bakeries, markets, shops, restaurants, taverns, as well as elaborate public spaces and facilities, including a forum, theatre, temples, and beautiful bathing complexes.

Here it’s easy to let your imagination fly and feel like you’ve been transported back in time, Ostia, is now one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. With your guide you’ll learn about the lifestyle of the inhabitants of Ostia, their good and bad habits, discuss the architecture of the houses of both the rich and more common citizens of Ostia.
