Know More about this tour

No other name could have been more appropriate for this city-harbor as it derives from the latin hostis (mouth). The settlement is in fact located close to the outfall of the river Tiber into the Tyrrhenian Sea and due to its strategical position, all the supplies of raw materials used to reach Ostia before being moved to Rome, let this satellite town play an essential role for the survival of Rome.

If after having watched a documentary about ancient Rome your dream is to live like an ancient roman for one day, and you yearn to wear a toga (typical roman gown), well this is your tour.

Be prepared to stroll along the Decumanus Maximus (main street) and live the daily life of an ancient roman citizen, stopping to eat or for a drink to a Caupona (tavern) or to a Thermopolium (bar), to the theater for a moment of relax and entertainment, to the Square of the Guilds, a shopping mall, to the forum financial, government, religious district and main gathering place for events, to the several public baths social occasions to relax like in a spa and discuss about politic and gossip. The tour also includes the visit to the firemen barrack to discover the efficiency of the romans in preventing and extinguishing fire, a big issue in a city where wood was the main material of construction.

This daydream, this full immersion in the past, so easy to reach, is only 30 km far from Rome; the chaotic pace and typical noise of a modern city will be easily forgotten as you approach the gate of what is called the Pompei of Rome for the state of preservation.
