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.

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.
