The Eternal City Tours presents:
ANCIENT OSTIA TOUR
Only few miles away from the city center, Ostia was the seaport of Rome. Buried for centuries by sand, the city is remarkably well preserved.
The Ancient City of Ostia gives a more complete picture of people's life than Pompei. Take a trip back in time to the ancient Roman Empire!
Taking a stroll along the Decumanus Maximus, Ostia's main street, and shaded by tall umbrella pines you'll enjoy the nice sea breeze and visit the Baths of Neptune with its fabulous mosaics, the Theatre, the Mill and Bakery of Roman times.
At the Thermopolium you will still see an ancient counter where drinks were served and imagine sipping a cup of Roman wine while hearing the conversation of shipbuilders and traders!
The tour continues to Ostia's main square: the Forum with the imposing ruins of the Capitolium: the largest temple in Ostia dedicated to the Capitoline triad, Juno, Jupiter and Minerva.
