    Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Discover the ancient site of Ostia Antica with a small group and expert guide. On this all inclusive guided tour, you will escape the noise and heat of Rome to explore one of the best-preserved ancient cities in the world. You will meet your guide at a central train/subway station, and take a train to Ostia. The train is the best way to get there, because you bypass all local traffic (train tickets included). Upon arrival at the site, you will have time to use the restrooms before the walking tour begins. Your small group (8 people or less) will skip the line and explore awe-inspiring ruins of Ostia led by a professional guide. Half-way through the tour you will have a restroom break, and your guide will give you an ample time to get some rest and have something to eat at a local cafe (own expenses). On this walking tour you will explore the highlights of this magnificent city, and at the end of the tour you can stay in, and explore further before coming back to Rome.

This was exceptional as I did not realise how interesting Ostia could be. Dmitri our guide was most informative and friendly and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. Which I have already done. Ostia is in wonderful condition considering how old it is. My

Huge archeological park provides a vivid picture of life for ordinary folks (from wealthy merchants to tradesmen, sailors and slaves) during the height of the Roman Empire. Site is a 30 min train ride from Pirimide Train Station in Rome. Site is so large and so little-visited

Took this three-hour tour, full of fascinating historical information, about three weeks ago. Very reasonable price included transportation to and from Ostia from Rome by train. Guide Dmitri was thoroughly knowledgeable about the site, and unfailingly friendly and helpful.

This was the best tour we took in Rome. Dmitri was incredibly knowledgeable about Ostia Antica and all other aspects of Ancient Roman history and culture. I can’t recommend this tour enough.
