Ancient Ostia: the dock of the Ancient Roman Empire.

Ancient Ostia Tour takes you to visit one of the main harbors of the Roman Empire, located right next to where the river Tiber meets the sea. With its centuries old pine groves and many ancient ruins, Ostia is a place full of ancient history and culture...

Founded around the year 600 B.C., Ostia was a crucial business place where the Ancient Romans lived and traded goods, especially salt, which was essential for preserving food at the time. There are many places in Ostia where you will be able to see the art and beauty of the ancient Roman Empire. “Theaters”, “taverns”, “ancient storefronts”, “thermal baths”,” houses”, “temples”, “palaces” … You will be spoiled for choice! In the Terme di Nettuno”, “Neptune’s Thermal Baths”, you will be able to see a beautiful mosaic depicting the god of the sea Neptune. With the Ancient Ostia Tour, you will also be able to see some examples of “Insula”, a typical ancient roman “condominium”. The most beautiful and best-preserved Insula is the Casa di Diana”, the House of Diana, where you will see wonderful mosaics and frescoes. The House of Diana is two stories high: The first floor is where the richest Romans lived, while the upper floors were the apartments of the poorer inhabitants. If you want to see how Romans lived their daily life, you can also pay a visit to the “Thermopolium”. Here you will be able to see “ancient restaurants and shopfronts”, where ancient Romans came to shop, trade, and eat. Many of the walls of the buildings here are decorated with beautiful frescoes that are still visible today! Romeanditaly group will let you see many of the highlights of the Ancient Ostia site, making you experience Ancient Rome like never before!

Ancient Ostia tour will also let you visit the “medieval town” and its “castle”, leading you through narrow streets that will take you back in time. Built in 1483, the “Castle of Julius II” is a great fort that stands proudly near the river Tiber. The brick walls of the castle were optimized for defense, but the castle was also the residence of pope Julius II who, when he was still only a bishop, loved to spend his time here, especially in the summer. The castle has beautiful frescoes that you will be able to see with this Ancient Ostia tour. You will also be able to stroll through the “streets of the medieval town”, enjoying their picturesque atmosphere. This old part of the town is a wonderful pearl that is deeply connected to the history of Catholicism in Ostia. Lose yourself in the streets and alleyways surrounding the castle and experience the essence of this old medieval part of the ancient city.
