Half Day Ancient Ostia By Train Tour
Calling all enthusiasts of ancient Roman ruins! If the Roman Forum and Pompeii were on your ‘sights to see list’ come see what experts are calling “The Better Pompeii”, just a step away from the Eternal city by local train. The beautifully preserved ruins of ‘Ostia Antica’ or Ancient Ostia commonly referred to as “The Better Pompeii” due to the astonishing highly preserved condition of its buildings. Structures included taverns, baths, apartments, groceries and theatres – and their intact state seems a misnomer to call them ‘ruins’. Walk the main street, the Decumanus Maximus, while your tour guide brings the stones around you to life. You’ll even be enticed to take a dip in the Baths of Neptune, which are crowned by a impressively intact mosaic of the sea god being drawn by a four horse chariot. And if you are a theatre fan, you shouldn’t miss Ancient Ostia’s amphitheatre –Among Ostica Antica’s many stunning sites. Don’t miss the chance to experience the “Better Pompeii” with us.
