Siga la carretera de la costa hasta el histórico enclave portuario de Ostia en este circuito matinal. Solamente tardará 30 minutos en llegar a Ostia Antica, en la desembocadura del río Tíber, y tendrá tiempo de sobra para explorar sus ruinas, que se encuentran en un excelente estado de conservación. Las ruinas se pueden visitar cómodamente, son compactas y con sombra, y le ofrecerán una visión seductora de la vida cotidiana en la antigua Roma.
Ett stort plus är att utflykten genomförs i liten grupp. Guiden var mycket väl förtrogen med Ostia, då han själv var arkeolog och hade medverkat vid utgrävningarna av Ostia. Mycket professionell och berättade på ett engagerat och positivt sätt. Ostia är mycket väl värt ett besök.
Well worth half a day. The excavations are very interesting and we were there almost by ourselves the guide spoke perfect English and was more than friendly and helpful. The excavations could fill an entire day but this seem to balance the time available to what you could comfortably see.
This tour is different as it allows you to get out of Rome and see what life was like outside the city. If your not into walking or cannot do extended walking on non flat surface as this is ancient and paths are dirt at times stone. Bring good walking shoes and don't bring shoes your not afraid to get dirty as the dust from the dirt paths was on shoes and pants. Our guide had a degree in architecture and teaching so information was detailed and interesting. At times the information was hard to retain as you are in ruins which had many layers of cultures living on the site. This dates back to before christ AD. Bring a daypack which has your essentials water bottle, wet-ones, towel or cloth for sweat. Weather in June is hot and this day no exception we did sweat so clothing should be light and absorbent and quick dry. Overall would recommend to anyone this tour who doesn't mind architecture and walking as I clocked 4.5 miles with my Nano.
This tour was interesting as it was outside of Rome and gave you a sense of life outside the city in ancient times. This tour is not for someone who has challenges with non flat surfaces as it is ancient and is made up of cobblestone or stones placed to make a path. Shoes should be good walking and not shoes your worried to dirty as it is dusty and at times a dirt path. Our tour guide had a degree in architecture and teaching and was very learnard in Greek and Roman history amongst others. Very informative but a lot of information and at one point overwhelming but if you enjoy architecture and can vision this as a working city then you will enjoy immensely. I would recommend this tour for those who don't mind a half day of walking as I clocked on my Nano 4.5 miles of walking. June was hot and if your smart you will bring a day pack with water and other provision such as wet ones or a towel to wipe the sweat as you will. Overall Viator does great thought out tours and this was what they pride themselves on. I would recommend but know it is walking and can be messy as dust was everywhere on my clothes but for me not a problem.
Great to get out of Rome for a few hours.The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the site and really made you feel as you were living that era. the site is larger than you think and you could easily spend most of the day there.
Well worth a visit
Although the tour guide was knowledgeable, we were constantly rushed through the tour. Many of us wanted to linger and take photos as it wasn't a tour we would likely go on again. The Neptune mosaic was stunning and well worth the trip to see it.
