Tour description

Take a break from the crowdy city center for a short trip to the sea coast: Ostia is just 20km away from Rome downtown with easy access by car or by train

This small Roman colony was settled during the 7th century b.C. by Roman king Anco Marzio in a strategical position at the mouth of Tiber river.

The harbor had a rapid development during the following centuries and it had a key function in supplying the city of Rome with food and any kind of goods arriving by sea from the farthest provinces of the Empire. 

The well preserved archaeological site, surrounded by greens and pine trees, includes remains of warehouses, villas, thermal baths as well as temples and a theater
