• Ostia Antica Tour •
THE ANCIENT HARBOUR OF ROME
Ostia Antica was the Ancient harbour of Rome and is the best preserved ancient Roman town with its Emporium, amphitheatre and residential area.
Ostia was the first Roman colony and quickly became a river harbour with a commercial function, supplying Rome with food and also had a strategic military role as naval base.
The city reached a peak of almost 75,000 inhabitants in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD and its location at the “mouth” of the river Tiber guaranteed its status as an active and prosperous colony!
The Ostia Antica Tour is a full immersion into the everyday life of the colony. Our local, licensed guides will show you the river port’s districts, its cults and religious buildings, houses and spas with their beautiful mosaics and remnants of artworks.
If you don’t have the time to go to Pompeii but would like to get a glimpse of the Ancient Roman life, visit the ruins of apartments in a condominium, an ancient fast food eatery, spas, warehouses, villas, a laundry and a dye works, temples and a marvelous theater – come with us to Ostia and see life as it was 2000 years ago!
The political, commercial and religious center was bustling with activity and typical of a Roman town – you’ll see the Forum, the Baths, the Capitolium, the Small Market and the fishmongers’ shops.
Along the “Decumanus” (one of the main streets) you’ll explore the commercial heart of Ostia with its public buildings, the huge “Piazzale delle Corporazioni” (Square of the Guilds), taverns, various handicraft workshops – like the very interesting “Fulloniche” (Fuller’s workshops).
There are also houses and “modern buildings” in Ostia Antica and near Porta Marina, you’ll find sepulchral monuments.
