    Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Discover the ancient site of Ostia Antica with a small group and expert guide. On this all inclusive guided tour, you will escape the noise and heat of Rome to explore one of the best-preserved ancient cities in the world. You will meet your guide at a central train/subway station, and take a train to Ostia. The train is the best way to get there, because you bypass all local traffic (train tickets included). Upon arrival at the site, you will have time to use the restrooms before the walking tour begins. Your small group (8 people or less) will skip the line and explore awe-inspiring ruins of Ostia led by a professional guide. Half-way through the tour you will have a restroom break, and your guide will give you an ample time to get some rest and have something to eat at a local cafe (own expenses). On this walking tour you will explore the highlights of this magnificent city, and at the end of the tour you can stay in, and explore further before coming back to Rome.

Never realised this place was so interesting. Very glad I went. An excellent example of a working class town.
Angela, our guide was very knowledgeable and certainly enthusiastic about the history of the period.

You can really explore ancient ruins and see how advance the Roman’s were. Angela was our tour guide and was amazing. Definitely be prepared to walk and do stairs. We did 12,000 steps just exploring Ostia Antica.

Passion. This is one word to describe Dimitry's mindset throughout our tour of Ostia. This clearly was a man oozing with passion of the history and experiences of the people that came before us. And that is the ultimate mark of a great historian - one that tries to understand everyday person's life and routine in order to truly appreciate the history and significance of an era. The tour was both informative and captivating, and as an armchair historian myself I was enthralled with Dimitry's brilliant visualization of the people and different epochs of Ostia, while at the same time contextually gluing the missing pieces of the historical puzzle together - all thanks to this great tour and its amazing tour guide. Thank you!

Small group tour of Ostia Antica by More of Rome was great. Andy was a great guide, very informative and made the tour interesting with the stories he told about the site. Only 4 people on our tour so we were able to move along quickly.

We had the most illuminating, fascinating, and enjoyable tour with Angie. Hands down, it’s the best tour we’ve been on while visiting Rome. Not only is Ostia Antica itself a breathtakingly expansive ruin of a shockingly intact Roman port city, but Angie provided so many amazing historical details about the architecture, trade, broader history, and most fascinatingly details of the lives of the working class people who once walked the streets of Ostia. Ostia Antica and this tour are our number one recommendation for future visitors of Rome!

What a great surprise to see such an amazing place so close to Rome. Our guide Dimitri was excellent. I can’t say enough about how well he managed the tour logistics (tickets, subway) and was such an informative guide. Ostia was a hidden gem with incredibly well maintained grounds and the excavations were so much more advanced than any other ancient cities I’ve been to including Pompeii and Petra. I highly recommend More of Rome and Dimitri as a guide. You will not be disappointed.

Ostia Antica (old mouth of the river) is a HIDDEN GEM. Avoid all the crowds elsewhere and see a great restoration site of the ancient port city!!! Excellent, knowledgeable, and professional guide - fluent English, a tour tailored to our needs and requests. Very flexible in accommodating our schedule. Superb value for money - highly recommended.

Brilliant tour which ended up being private as there were only two of us with the guide. The place is totally underrated and completely on a par with Pompeii. We really enjoyed our tour as the guide was knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the subject. Highly recommended, a very doable day trip from Rome, a 30 min train ride is all it takes!
