Tour to Ostia from Civitavecchia

We are arriving on a cruise ship and we don't want to go into Rome. Are there any tours offered to Ostia from the port or nearby that are reasonable? Any advice would be appreciated.

Any recommendations for a good restaurant as well?

Civitavecchia is a small town, and I don't think there are any tours from there other than those offered in conjunction with a cruise.

To get to Ostia Antica (or Ostia Lido) by public transport, you would have to go into Rome. At Civitavecchia station, buy a BIRG (regional daily) ticket for €9 from the ticket office or tobacconist. Take a local train into Rome, getting off at Ostiense. Change there to the Roma Lido line, getting off at Ostia Antica (or for the Lido, go on a couple more stops).

The BIRG ticket will cover local trains from and to Civitavecchia, the train to and from Ostia, and any other public transport within central Rome.

Actually there are tours from Civitavecchia to Tarquinia, the Terme Taurine, Ficoncella Baths (termal area in town), and I am sure several more

Thank you for your comments. Tarquinia appears to be north of Civitavecchia. Ostia holds more interest at the moment.
