Full description
Once a buzzing hub of industrial activity, Rome’s Ostiense neighbourhood offers an eclectic mix of sites to explore. A huge cylindrical gasometer, dating from the 1930s and visible from all around town, has become an emblem of the area and its working-class roots. Factories and other buildings from the turn of the century are now apartments, bars, and restaurants. In recent years, famous street artists from around the world have also chosen this dynamic quartiere as their canvas – join our tour to discover the colours and textures of vibrant Ostiense. The tour will meet outside Piramide metro stop, which gets its name from the 2,000-year-old Egyptian-style pyramid that stands outside. Built by the Roman general Gaius Cestius as his funerary monument, the 36-metre-high monolith is covered in white marble and is a striking addition to the Ostiense skyline. From Piramide, we’ll walk down Via Ostiense, which was once an ancient road that stretched all the way out to sea, to the trading port of Ostia. On this modern street, the graffiti, stickers, and wheatpaste posters that characterize the neighbourhood begin to appear. Ready to discover?!
