Relive the glory of Ancient Rome with a unique guided tour to Ostia Antica! Depart from Rome by local train through the western countryside of Rome. This once lively harbor town founded in the 4th century BC is commonly referred to as the “better Pompeii” due to the astonishing preservation of its buildings.

With an expert guide and a small group, stroll through ancient taverns, baths, apartments, groceries and theaters. Their present condition so strikingly exceeds that of the Roman Forum, Imperial Forum and Pompeii, that it seems a misnomer to call them ‘ruins’. Let your imagination fly at the Forum of the Corporations, a former trade center, and Decumanus Maximus, the city’s main street.
