Full description
Discover the secret ruins of Rome. According to legend, Ostia was founded by Ancus Marcius, the 4th King of Rome. In any case, the first settlement can be traced back to the beginning of the 4th century B.C.

The area became almost immediately a river port acquiring a commercial function to supply Rome with food stuff, even if its strategic military function as a naval base certainly prevailed.

During the centuries, the little town changed a lot and walking with your guide, you will have the unbelievable experience of walking through the centuries and visit the following sites: Porta Marina, the Commercial Street, the Forum, the Cardum Maximum, the bath and the tabernae.
