We booked this private family guided tour of the site of Ostia Antica for the third day of our 4-day visit to Rome. My husband and I and our four children thoroughly enjoyed the very interesting tour by Stefania (a highly experienced tour guide with a phd in history and a vast, impressive knowledge in the field). Not only did she provide fascinating information to my husband and myself, but she made the tour fun and interactive for the children (aged between 14 and 9). The site of Ostia Antica is absolutely incredible, providing a good insight into daily life of a Roman city in the old times. Having an experienced and articulate guide like Stefania makes all the difference and is a worthwhile spend to got the most out of the visit. Stefania happily overextended the 1,5 hour tour time to provide us with some extra insights and information. Take the train from Porta San Paolo in Rome, the journey is a mere 1,50 euros and lasts about 25-30 minutes. The site is also excellent to beat the crowds (even in non-covid days) as it is all open air and fringed with beautiful big old trees. We caught the train again at Ostia Antica and continued onto the beachside to have an excellent lunch.
