Full description
Your private driver will pick you up from your accommodation in central Rome and, in about 45 minutes, you’ll reach Ostia Antica where you’ll first tour the ruins (skip-the-line tickets included). Be led by an official licensed tour guide. The ancient Roman city of Ostia was in antiquity situated at the mouth of the river Tiber, some 30-kilometers to the west of Rome. The shoreline moved seawards due to silting from the Middle Ages until the 19th century. Therefore, Ostia is today still lying next to the Tiber. The river was used as harbor, but in the Imperial period, two harbor basins were added to the north, near Leonardo da Vinci Airport. The harbor district was called Portus, Latin for "harbor." This tour focuses on some of the archaeological remains of Imperial Ostia and Portus. Then you’ll spend some time visiting by yourself the wonderful medieval neighborhood near the ruins, stopping for lunch at your own expense. At the end of the tour, sit back, relax and enjoy your short drive back to your hotel in Rome. The duration of your tour is about 7 hours and you can expect to be back at your hotel around 16:00, depending on local traffic.
