your experience

It’s time to visit the stupendously beautiful ancient Italian city of Ostia Antica, famed for its overwhelming beauty all over Italy. Depart from Rome in a luxury coach and follow the Via del Mare, the road to the sea, for thirty minutes before arriving at Ostia as it lies near the mouth of the Tiber River. Once a robust center for trade and business due to its unique geographical location, it's importance declined once the port was silted up following the barbarian invasions. Archeological inspection brought the city back into the limelight for having witnessed almost a millennia of Roman history, which will be easy to see as you navigate your way through the ruins of the ancient city, as your guide gives you insight regarding the social and cultural life of the former citizens.

Learn about the city’s ancient and rich history and immerse yourself in the sounds and sights of this wonderful destination. Start at the Via delle Tombe, which leads to the Porta Romana, one of the city gates, and the beginning of the Decumanus Maximus, the main thoroughfare from the northeast to the southwest of the city. Spanning over 4 hours, explore the sites in the city like the Terme di Nettune, where you can admire the monochromatic mosaics of Neptune and Amphitrite, the famous amphitheater built by Agrippa, the famed thermal baths and the principal buildings like Il Capitolium and the Forum. Explore the local markets decorated with colorful mosaics and also observe the lives of the working class present day Romans. Closer to Rome, this visit will leave you enlightened with the country’s culture, history and modern day life style. If you’re too reluctant to travel to Pompeii for its distance, this is one destination that should be on your list.
