Rome: Ostia Antica Private Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line

6. Rome: Ostia Antica Private Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line

Have a walk through the Roman ruins in the old town of Ostia Antica, a small Pompeii just a few kilometers away from Rome. Discover the history of a settlement that can be traced back to the beginning of the 4th century B.C., which served as a military outpost to control not only access to the Tiber but also its lower course and nearby areas, in order to defend Rome. After meeting your guide, skip the entrance lines to explore Ostia, the first Roman colony. Hear about its role as a river port that acquired a commercial function to supply Rome with foodstuffs, particularly wheat, even if its strategic military function as a naval base certainly prevailed.  Learn about how the city was later surrounded by a new circle of walls that circumscribed an urban area of about 50 hectares, divided into five regions or neighborhoods. While there, see Neptune's Thermal Baths, the theatre, the forum, the House of Diana, and more.

From Rome: Ostia Antica Ruins

7. From Rome: Ostia Antica Ruins

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.

Taking the Roma pass for 3 days in Rome is just perfect. Visit the Colosseum and Pantheon and for the Vatican it is better to take separate places with a guide. In addition, transport in Rome is included so you have to take advantage of it.

The trip was great. We thought about whether a Rome pass was necessary, but there was a metro under the hotel we stayed in and we didn't walk at all :)

The opening times could be stated correctly. A tourist office was only open until 6:00 p.m. instead of 7:00 p.m. as stated

Super easy use of almost all public transport. No stress if you make a mistake. Great network.

Super practical package including transport and visits.
