From this page you can download, free of charge, our Archeotrekking and Art trekking itineraries.
Paths created by our expert tourist guides as part of the “Il Litorale degli Eroi” project, created with the contribution of the Lazio Region (Call for tender “Implementation of interventions to support the territory for the relaunch of tourism in Lazio”).
The four routes take place on the Lazio coast from Ostia to Anzio. Archeotrekking unfolds in nature, while Art trekking is set in the town of Ostia.
The detailed route is shown on a map, where the relevant stages and the way to reach them are indicated. At each stop interesting explanations with insights and curiosities of the places you are visiting.
They are excursions suitable for everyone, to discover lesser-known but equally suggestive places.
Ancient Ostia and its river
The first of these Archeotrekking winds through the countryside located between the modern town of Ostia Antica, in its portion called Saline, and the River Tiber.
From a technical point of view, it is an easy route suitable for everyone. We recommend footwear suitable for urban trekking and drinking water, as well as a hat and sunscreen in the summer months.
From an archaeological point of view it is extremely interesting for understanding the relationship between the ancient settlement and the river which has undergone multiple transformations over time.
The pine forest of Castel Fusano
The second Archeotrekking takes place in a portion of the Castel Fusano pine forest, a symbolic place on the Roman coast, favored by residents for sports and outdoor activities, and also appreciated by tourists. The route is suitable for everyone and runs like a figure eight around the starting point.
In fact, after the first half you will go back passing from the starting point to continue with the second half of the route. This peculiarity of the itinerary also favors families with children who may eventually decide to stop after the first part.
Barocchetto and rationalism
We will start our itinerary right from the basilica of Regina Pacis, it is a path that from the center of the neighborhood will wind along the main roads, to lead us to the sea and end in the northern area directly on the beach.
Ostia Lido was founded from scratch in the 20th century and this makes it an almost unique case of particular interest in the Italian architectural and urban panorama. In 1904, on the initiative of the engineer Paolo Orlando, the “Pro Roma Marittima Committee for the Port of Rome and the navigation of the Tiber and Nera” was set up. In 1905 the Committee obtained the extension of the ancient route of the Via Ostiense up to the Tyrrhenian Sea (2.5 km). The works finished the following year, while in 1907 there was the inauguration.
The natural reserve of Tor Caldara
With our fourth Archeotrekking we move south along the Roman coast, we find ourselves in the Tor Caldara Regional Nature Reserve, a protected area located along the coast road that goes from Ostia to Anzio. It is an easy path suitable for everyone that winds perpendicular to the coast. Shoes suitable for urban trekking are recommended. Four-legged friends are not allowed as they could disturb the local fauna. Due to some characteristics of the site (presence of solfataras), particular care must be taken with children.
