Ancient Ostia Tour
The guided tour of Ancient Ostia is generally chosen by curious tourists who want to explore the history of Ancient Rome beyond its borders, accompanied by a private tour guide Evolved Guide.
An enviable and crucial position for the ancient port of the city of Rome, Ostium, in Latin “mouth”, bearing witness to its proximity to the delta of the Tiber, was a flourishing trading port whose construction began in the 4th century A.D.
The Archeological Site of Ancient Ostia is one of the best preserved archeological sites of the Roman era in the world. Thermal baths, houses, shops, taverns and theatres, so perfectly preserved as to be the envy of Pompei, will welcome you and make you forget that you are in the midst of “ruins”.
Walking along the Decumanus Massimus, the main road, while you listen to the fascinating stories told by your guide, you will see the daily life of an entire country unfold around you, the statues along the way will simply strengthen the feeling.
Of the various wonders of this open-air museum we cannot but mention the Theatre, built in the 2nd century A.D. and able to accommodate up to 3,500 people. Today it is still used for its ancient purpose, it hosts wonderful theatrical performances and concerts and its acoustics make us appreciate even more the engineering skills of its builders.
