Ostia Antica was the first port of ancient Rome, founded in the 4th century BC, Ostia quickly became a flourishing city with a population of about 50,000 inhabitants, rich and poor, locals and foreigners, all layers of the ancient society. With More of Rome’s guide you will walk the  streets of this once thriving city, rich in history and myth, the busy streets where you can still hear the echoes of the past. Ostia Antica was the very first Roman colony and its first port supplying the Caput Mundi or the Center of the World with food, oil and wine, people and goods came here from all around the world and, of course, every corner of mighty Roman Empire.

On this tour, time seems to fly as our guide takes you from one highlight of the city to the next while giving you the facts, telling you stories and anecdotes, and revealing few secrets of Rome’s past. In Ostia Antica you can admire ancient mosaics, see how people lived their daily lives, visit shops, bars, fast food joints a bath-house, and latrines, or pop in the theater towering above the town’s market place.

Your ticket is valid for the whole day, so after the tour you can continue the exploration on your own, at your own pace, and, of course, our guide will provide you with the round trip, train tickets, so you can leave at the time of your choosing.

If you want to see something special and off the beaten path , you MUST go to Ostia Antica with this company. It’s a half day tour and give you the chance to see real mosaics and frescos. It was really hot day but the guide took care of us and there isa cafeteria inside the site, very clean.

I wanted to go to Pompeii but did not have the time for the trip. I asked to the More of Rome customer care something similar. Well, the suggested OSTIA ANTICA TOUR. We met the guide at Piramide metro and took the train to Ostia Antica. Our guide , Dimitry was friendly, knowledeable and fun.

Excellent experience, a wonderful way to discover the magnificence of Rome, the secret story of unknown characters or the amazing beauty of ancient Ostia.
Absolutely perfect, helpful and friendly guides that allowed us to get away for a few hours from everyday life to venture on a timeless journey.

We did not have time to go to Pompeii so we decided to book ostia instead and we were not disappointed. It’s not too far from the city and four hours are just enough to explore the whole city. The guide was very knowledgeable and funny, but not overboard.
thank you more of rome.
