We took the teain from central Rome to ostia antica Well worth the trip. You walk on Ancient Roman streets, enter houses and shops, stand on the steps of an amphitheater. An amazing day out. Prepare to walk and walk and be amazed at the quality of these ancient ruins. Mozaic floors, wall decorations, the list goes on and on.... More

Great tour. Ostia is an amazing place. This tour gives an insight into Roman life and times. Romina our guide brought everything in Ostia Antica to life. For example she explained how religion and politics interacted in the Roman empire. How food for the city of Rome was imported. How the Romans entertained themselves. A great way to spend a... More

Romina was an excellent guide - she gave us an insight into this fantastic site that we wouldn't have got from a guide book. She was great with our children - really engaged them and answered all their questions.

Very informative tour. Some rain but Romina was very helpful in altering the arranged meeting time to minimise any issues. Amazing ruins over a huge area. More impressive than Pompeii and don't know one doesn't hear more about it. Just next to the airport so made a great last afternoon activity before our flight home.

This was likely one of the best tours I have experienced in over 40 years of travel. Our guide, Fabio (a qualified archeologist) was engaging, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He brought the archeological site of Ostia Antica to life with his descriptions of the life of the inhabitants who lived there when this was a thriving metropolis.

Our tour was magnificent! We started our visit early in the day and It felt like we had the entire site all to ourselves. This is a perfect side trip from the bustle of Rome... tranquil, cypress trees, and so much to explore. Our guide MariaRita truly had a passion for the place, sharing with us the history, customs and... More

What a wonderful afternoon we had in Ostia with Romina. She has such an amazing wealth of knowledge to share with us and she did so in such a thoughtful way. We left understanding not only how Ostia was laid out but how any other Roman city of that time would be laid out as well. Her enthusiasm and ability... More

We knew we had a 5 hour wait in Rome before boarding our cruise ship at Civetivecchia. I found this private tour on TripAdvisor and emailed Camilla at their website. She was invaluable in not only booking the tour, but teaching us about transportation from the airport to the site and then from the site to Civetivecchia. We took a... More

Our guide, Romina, was on time with excellent knowledge of ruins. Well worth the expense. It is foolish to do a self guided visit.

Ostia Antica is only a short distance from Rome and is a fascinating day trip. Our family enjoyed exploring the site and learning the history of the ancient town. Our guide, Romena, was very knowledgable and friendly, and we would highly recommend her if you are planning to visit. If you are visiting in the summer, remember to bring water... More
