This was our favourite tour of the holiday. The guide was very engaging and knew alot about the history of Ostia. We were fascinated by the city and would definitely recommend booking a guided tour as if we had walked around on our own we would not have got as much out of it. The sights are fantastic, lots of photo opportunities and it really gives a sense of ancient Rome, much more so than the Roman Forum. There is a cafe where we stopped half way through the tour to refuel. There is a lot of walking involved, but it is broken up as we stopped (in the shade) to listen to information being given by the guide. A thoroughly enjoyable day, would definitely recommend.
There is a lot of walking on this tour and it feels like there is a lot to pack in within 3 hours. Having said that, we really enjoyed it and our guide was very knowledgable. We didn't realise it included the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon so were pleased that we got to see these too. I would recommend this tour at the beginning of your stay as it allows you to get your bearings whilst seeing alot of the sights in Rome.
