What is Ostia Antica

Ostia Antica is one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in the world. It offers a priceless insight into life in ancient Rome. Built over 2000 years ago, Ostia served as a river port – a gateway to the Roman empire. Here, at Ostia, life revolved around the import of grain. The grain would come from as far as Egypt. Ostia was a thriving city with a large population, you will be amazed by how well-developed the town was. This ancient harbour’s infrastructure is impressive, and the shops, baths, temples, schools, apartment buildings, and markets will strike you with their amazingly modern design. Join us on this tour to see what the ancient Roman world was like.
