PRIVATE OSTIA FAMILY TOUR FOR CHILDREN

The remains of the ancient port for Rome date back to around 600 B.C. With a population of approx. 50,000 and its own forum, temples, theatre, bath houses and vigils barracks it is as interesting to see as going further afield to Pompeii. Put this family tour on your must see list if you are interested in ancient Rome history and archaeology but do not have time to travel all to Pompeii.

Ostia Antica, also known as the Better Pompeii, is a huge archaeological site perfect for hands-on exploring. Outstanding as Pompeii but far less touristy and easier to reach the ancient Roman port town of Ostia is located just a short ride from the city. Moreover, without the crowds of Pompeii it is much easier to let your imagination run wild and feel like archaeologists for a day!

Walk along cobbled streets among 2000 years old temples, houses, and shopping arcades in the footsteps of sailors and merchants. From the bakery to the fishmongers, from the bars, restaurants and public toilets to the town square, every stop reveals images of a rich, bustling port life. Some buildings are three stories high and it is possible to climb the steps and take in the view the sheer extent of the well-preserved ruins. Explore the amphitheater and hear interesting facts and tales about gladiators and actors. There is no end to the fun, as you discover mosaics and frescoes depicting mythical characters. Ostia family tour has all the ingredients for an exciting trip time traveling back to the days of the Romans.
