Service Description

Embark on a journey to Ostia Antica, an authentic treasure and the prime alternative to Pompeii for a real Roman experience. Once the bustling port of Rome, Ostia, engulfed by mud for centuries, now stands as a beautifully preserved testament to ancient life. With your tickets to the Ancient Ostia Guided Tour included, you're set to explore an array of baths, houses, and temple remains, all meticulously organized in a classic Roman town layout. Imagine walking through an ancient shopping center, where barracks, warehouses, offices, and taverns line the streets just as they did millennia ago. Founded in 335 B.C., Ostia was the lifeline of Rome, its main port, until the Tiber's course shifted, leaving the town silently forgotten, only to be perfectly preserved by the mud from the river. This accidental preservation offers you a window into ancient life, undisturbed and authentic. The Neptune Baths and the House of Diana are just the beginning of what's in store. On the baths' terrace, marvel at magnificent mosaics that tell tales of daily Roman life, beyond mere ruins. A visit to the House of Diana offers a rare glimpse into a Roman apartment, revealing how the ancients lived with two impeccably preserved floors. Your journey continues to the heart of Ostia's commercial life in the shopping district. Here, the 2nd-century Epagathiana Warehouses and the Thermopolium await, so well-preserved they could seamlessly fit into the 21st century, showcasing the timeless Roman architectural prowess. Visiting Ostia Antica with us, you'll step back over two millennia, experiencing the vibrancy of Roman life as if it had never faded. Let us guide you through this ancient town, where every corner, every stone, and every mosaic piece tells a story of glory, daily life, and the remarkable preservation of history.
