Get out of the city and experience antiquity Not far from Rome, easy to reach by train, is a very special ancient city. We show you ancient Ostia, a once thriving city with a direct view of the sea. Because one has to say that both the Tiber and the sea coast have changed over the thousands of years. The city's location was so important in ancient times that Ostia became the capital's inland port. Goods from all over the Mediterranean came to Rome from here. In contrast to the ancient city of Pompeii, whose history ended in 79 AD, life in Ostia continued until late antiquity, which we can see in detail today in the archaeological park with the many remains of the city. Today you will experience the characteristic buildings of ancient city life with our German-speaking city guides. This includes many different shops, impressive villas, thermal baths, warehouses, tombs and even a theatre.
