Unpeel layers of history on a day tour of Ostia Antica from Rome

Ostia Antica sits on the Tiber River and used to be the port of Rome. It is now an ancient harbour city, with historic ruins that give you a glimpse into how the Romans lived many centuries ago. Ostia also has a pretty beach, making it the perfect destination to visit in the summer, and the waterfront has many tempting Gelaterie with creamy ice creams and decadent toppings!

This tour is an excellent choice for anyone interested in the Roman Empire or archeology, or those that simply want to explore the outskirts of Rome.
