Tour Ostia Antica and the Valley of the Colosseum (whole day)
Experience a day in ancient Rome! From the city-harbor of Ostia Antica to the very heart of the Roman Empire: the Valley of the Colosseum
DESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR
This tour will allow you to have a very broad overview of everyday life in ancient Rome within the same day. In the morning we will explore Ostia Antica, a perfectly preserved Roman city (also known as “the better Pompeii”), with its streets, houses, temples, taverns and warehouses. In the afternoon, we will go to the center of Rome (ca. 30 minutes by train) where you will admire some of the most famous monuments of the world. You will see the Roman Forum from the Capitoline Hill and walk through the Imperial Fora up to the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine.
Why Ostia Antica and center of Rome in the same day? The famous archaeologist Gaston Boissier provides the answer: to understand Rome, you need to know Ostia! “These two towns [Pompeii and Ostia] are the best-preserved relics of Roman antiquity. As they have the advantage of illustrating it from different angles and are complementary, it is well, when we wish to understand Rome, not to separate them”.
The price does NOT inlcude the ticket to the archeological excavations of Ostia Antica. No ticket is needed for the archeological walk from the Colosseum to the Roman Forum.
