Ancient treasures & Roman lifestyles.
Let your imagination take you back 2,000 years when Ostia was a thriving seaport, before it was abandoned with the fall of Rome and eventually covered in mud. Excavated in the early 20th century, today Ostia Antica is an incredible archaeological site, rivalling Pompeii and Herculaneum in terms of beauty, size, and state of preservation. As we walk through the ruins, view the remains of docks, warehouses, apartment flats, mansions, shopping arcades, and baths — all giving insight into the lifestyle of ancient Romans.
Rome’s ancient seaport! Due to “silting” it is now miles from the coast, but you see the treasures of this beautifully excavated town, including intact mosaics that time has kept perfectly intact.
