Wow, Maria Rita gave us an excellent tour of Ostia Antica! She met us outside the ticket office and proceeded to give the four of us a thoroughly fascinating experience. Maria had pictures to show us as we toured to give even more perspective and history. This site was not crowded, so we were able to find private spots to hear her explanations, take plenty of pictures, and imagine what life was like when this city was a thriving port. So much better than overcrowded Pompeii. Maria is an engaging, knowledgeable archeologist who imparted her enthusiasm for Ostia Antica during this wonderful tour.
Maria did an excellent job of explaining the history and architecture of Ostia Antica as we walked through the ruins. She used visual aids to help us imagine how it looked centuries ago and to increase our understanding. She is not only very knowledgeable about Ostica Antica having worked on the site as an archaeologist but also an excellent communicator and teacher to someone who knows nothing about archaeology or Ostica Antica. We highly recommend this tour.
Maria Rita was an excellent Guide. She was knowledgeable, professional and polite. She was happy to answer questions and kept the exchange flowing. The tour itself was done at a very good pace.
Our guide Angela was excellent, very knowledgeable and passionate about the place and its history. The site was well worth the visit, but a good guide is crucial.
