What people are saying about Ostia Antica

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 Rita was an amazing guide. She brought the large Ostia Antica antiquity site into a manageable tour. Not only is she a trained archaeologist, but she has knowledge about history and the arts. I booked a small group tour but was lucky enough to have a private tour with her. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and learning more about Italy. I wish I had turn this on the beginning of my trip instead of the end because I could have used the knowledge when visiting other places. Maria Rita is a delightful person who is very passionate about her job.

Ostia Antica Guided Tour with Local Archaeologist Reviewed by SUZANNE, 10/30/2019

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.

Very enjoyable tour. the guide , sorry I can't remember her name, was very good. I enjoyed her dry humour. She was very knowledgeable. We met at Piramide station and she took us to Ostia Antica. A lovely relaxed visit. Thank you.
