Also this second trip with Mea Tours was great. Tanja, also a German "electoral Italian", was very friendly and hard working, you could see that she was with all her heart in the matter. She told us many interesting things and we (my wife and I) were lucky again to be alone with her, so we were able to set the pace and scope of the tour ourselves and the whole thing ran very relaxed. Simply recommendable not to expose anything!

Description

The day trip to Ostia is aimed at all those who are interested in the history of Rome and the archaeological finds from the ancient world

Our guide will accompany you to the ancient city, not far from the centre of Rome. The ancient city of Ostia can be dated back to 640 BC. It was once the port city of Rome and was founded by Ancus Marcus. According to his legends, the city was located directly on the banks of the Tiber. The name Ostia is derived from the Latin word ostium, which means mouth.

At the beginning of his time, Ostia benefited from the surrounding salt marshes and had an important role in salt production. Salt production was important for the Roman population, as they used salt mainly for the preservation of food.

Ostia was the first Roman colony and quickly became a port city. Furthermore, the city was a military base for the defence of the mouth of the Tiber and the city of Rome

Discover the wonderful Necropolis on the trip to Ostia and immerse yourself in the world of the ancient Romans. Visit the excavations of the amphitheatre and thermal baths and the Thermopolium
