Ostia Antica: My Roman Pompeii
What we’ll do
Words are not enough to describe the sense of enjoyment, fulfillment and ease that will capture your mind and soul as we'll step into the ancient city of Ostia, immersed in the marvellous Mediterranean vegetation while walking through its monumental remains, in the cool shade and resinous scent of umbrella pines. Close by, the Roman coast invites you to have a further stop after the walk and indulge in a delicious, unforgettable lunch by the sea, in a dazzling light and a seductive breeze that carry the scent of eternity.
Where are we going
More than two millennia ago and until the fall of the Roman empire, Ostia was the main commercial port of the entire region. Wonderfully preserved, “our Roman Pompei” gives us a very clear idea of ancient daily life, much more than Rome itself! Laundries, private houses and palaces, shops, even a firefighters’ station still standing, side by side with public buildings, baths, temples and theatres...everything recreates in our mind a perfect, stunning picture of how an ancient Roman city looked like and how its inhabitants experienced and enjoyed day by day its cultural, religious, political, social and entertaining opportunities.
