First the site is very close to Rome— just a few Metro stops from Piramide. Second the place is vast and was not crowded in November. Third and most important,
our tour with Dimitry was stunningly interesting,. His knowledge and delivery are engaging, informative, and fun. He evokes curiosity of the antiient way of life in this seaport city and offers comparisons with Pompei.

This was a fantastic experience.

My grandfather dug in Ostia back in the 60’s so it was my dream to visit this site. I can’t even begin to describe what it meant to finally see the places that my Nonno had told me so much about. Thank you Maria (the guide) and More of Rome!

I had been to Ostia once before, but this time around I wanted to do it with a guide who could explain what is what. Maria, our guide was great, you could tell that she is the expert in her field. Totally different approach, we were treated like guests and not clients, every question was answered, and no stone unturned.

The tour was amazing, we basically had the entire site all to ourselves. Our group was small and the way the guide delivered the information was fun and easy to understand.
