Ostia Antica Ruins:

Ostia was Ancient Rome's seaport, the ancient Roman city of Ostia was in antiquity situated at the mouth of the river Tiber, some 30 kilometres to the west of Rome. The shoreline moved seawards, due to silting, from the Middle Ages until the 19th century. Therefore Ostia is today still lying next to the Tiber, but at a distance of some three kilometers from the beach. Ostia is Latin for "mouth", the mouth of the Tiber. The river was used as harbour, but in the Imperial period two harbour basins were added to the north, near Leonardo da Vinci airport. The harbour district was called Portus, Latin for "harbour".

This Tour focuses on some of the archaeological remains of Imperial Ostia and Portus:
• Apartments buildings, with two or three upper floors

• Baths and communal latrines
• The seats of guilds
• Workshops, such as bakeries and fulleries
• Store buildings
• Public buildings
• Temples and little shrines, dedicated to traditional and oriental deities

• Sculpture
• GraffitiThen you’ll spend some time visiting by yourself the wonderful little medieval neighbourhood near the Ruins, stopping also for lunch (own expense).
