Ancient Ostia is a large archeological site, close to the modern suburb of Ostia , that was the location of the Harbour city of ancient Rome, which is approximately 30 kilometres (19 miles) to the northeast. “Ostia” is a derivation of “os”, the Latin word for “mouth”. At the mouth of the River Tiber, Ostia was Rome’s seaport, but due to silting the site now lies 3 kilometres (2 miles) from the sea. The site is noted for the excellent preservation of its ancient buildings, magnificent Frescoes and impressive Mosaics.
It will take abou about 45 minutes to drive from Rome to Ostia and For a more detailed visit is recommended the support of a licensed Tour Guide who will take care of you for the tour inside the ruins of Ostia. (The Guide is optional of course, but highly recommended).
If you wish, we can extend the tour “about 2 hours” for an authentic lunch at a nice restaurant on the waterfront.
