Ostia Antica is one of the most overlooked archaeological sites for Americans. We have been to Herculaneum and Pompei in the past and although impressive, Ostia Antica is equal to or better than both. You meet your guide at the Pyramid stop on the Metro. Board the train for the site. Walk about 1/2 mile to the entrance and the spend about 3 hours with your guide in the site. Very easy walking in the site. My wife and I are both 70 and had little trouble getting around. After the tour you may remain on your own, take the train to the beach or return to the city. Your train ticket is included and can be used to return to the city. If you return on your own the train only goes to the beach or the city. Can't get lost.
This is a place you do not want to miss. You may be the only one of your friends that has been here. Our guide was from Canada, well versed in what was important, and of course spoke perfect English. What a wonderful day.

This was a really cool tour. Our tour guide was excellent. The ruins had so many different looks. Mosaics were awesome. A short train ride and we were out in the country. We could have stayed all day but we had another tour.
Highly recommend this informative and entertaining tour to a lesser known/visited part of Ancient Rome
Was a wonderful experience! Would go again! Be prepared for some walking :
I think this was the best tour that I have been on. The guide was great I am sorry I can't remember her name She was so knowledgeable and made everything so real. I can't speak highly enough about the day. Ostia is a must for any visitor to Rome
This was one incredible outing - Ancient Ostia Small Group Day Trip from Rome. Our tour guide, Rebecca old Rebecca!, rebbri, was the best we have had on our 4-week self-tour of Italy. The tempo of the tour, the commuter train to Ostia, the walk around Ostia to see the highlights of the ancient ruins, the return trip to Rome, all went off flawlessly. Her descriptions of sights both on the way to Ostia and within the ancient ruins were fascinating and entertaining. She read her group perfectly mixing humor and history. We couldn't have received a better description of this fabulous site. I look at the photos and marvel at the detail I can recall thanks to her. The Amphitheater, the dozen of original 2,000-year-old mosaic floors of the shops in the old port, the baths, the remnants of multi-story apartment buildings and even an old snack bar...INCREDIBLE. It was all brought to life by Rebecca. To be honest, this was not on our original list of things to see, but many people recommended the site. We are so glad we made this tour. As we were to make our way across Rome, she provided us with recommendations for lunch and for that we were grateful. We ate well before the afternoon tour of the Borgeshe. Thanks, Rebecca and CityWonders.
Our guide Roberto was amazing. He was so kind, funny, and knowlegeable. He answered all our questions and kept us laughing.
We learned so much. Ostia is beautiful and I loved seeing all the ruins. You definitely need a guide on this tour, because you would not know what you were looking at nor the history behind it. We took the train back to Rome with Roberto, and he so gracioulsy made sure we knew where to catch the train back to our hotel. I highly recommend this tour.
Was one of the highlights of our visit to Rome. Great to have as much time as we wanted after our guide finished.
Extremely interesting and a hidden gem amongst the many tourist attractions on offer in Rome. Rebecca, our guide explained everything so well and passionately brought the ancient city to life - in our imaginations at least. We loved Rebecca's insights and stories. As the tour was only half a day, we had limited time, but it was enough to learn about and appreciate this beautiful and extensive archaeological site. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in Ancient Rome and the links between Ostia and Rome. Rebecca was an excellent guide and such a bonus.
A wonderful excursion by a great guide. Viator never leaves me down!
