11. Private tour of Ancient Ostia by train

I’m a tourist guide with a background in Archaeology, so I’d love to visit with you Ancient Ostia: the perfect day trip from Rome for those in love with history.
This site is essential to understand the daily life in the Roman Empire, and it’s easy to reach by train.

The city was the harbour of Rome on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and was a lively town with 100, 000 inhabitants in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD.
With the fall of the Roman Empire, the city was slowly abandoned due to the threat of repeated invasions and the decline of the commerce.

Don’t miss the chance to visit this site with an archaeologist: I’ll help you understanding that those suggestive ruins once were thermal baths, theatres, ancient “public toilets”, apartment buildings, shops and much more.
