Ancient Ostia Tour

Ostia Antica excavations are situated at the mouth of Tiber river on the Mediterranean. Visit this maritime port of ancient Rome only rediscovered in the 19th century. Ostia was founded probably in the 7th century BC for salt extraction, but later it became a military and naval port, protecting the access to Rome from invaders. With Rome’s growing power, it turned into a thriving commercial port, which for centuries received grains, luxurious goods, spices and innumerable wild animals from Africa and Asia.

It suddenly became a ghost town when an epochal flood changed the course of the Tiber. With intriguing and entertaining explanations recounted by your guide, you will experience during Ancient Ostia ProvateTour how life was in this ancient sea-port.

Ancient Ostia Tour

We had the opportunity to linger at sites that interested us as long as we desired before moving on. Our lovely tour guide did a fantastic job of describing the hustle and bustle of the ancient city as it was during its glory days, giving us so much history and tidbits of fascinating information. At the end of the tour, we were able to remain inside the grounds to our hearts desire and take in the splendor of this area.
