THIS VISIT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Ostia Antica is an incredible ancient site, which is often overlooked by visitors. Once the port town at the entrance of the River Tiber, the town grew wealthy as goods and travellers arrived here from across the empire.

***FREE SUNDAYS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS, SO THERE WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL €12 TO PAY AT THE SITE***

We will be visiting the site with Francesca, who studied archaeology before qualifying as a guide. Our tour will include the necropolis, the baths of Neptune, an apartment block and a rich house, a theatre, a public toilet, the forum, shops and the main temple (and at my request also the mithraeum if it's open, because I like that sort of thing!).

PLAN B - if it looks like it's going to rain on March 1st, we will move this visit to the first Sunday in April and offer an indoor tour instead.

PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS: Please send €17 to Protected content Please don't write anything like 'visit' or 'tour' otherwise we are charged as a business transaction, I just need to see your name somewhere:-) If you don't have PayPal, let me know your email address and I will send you a request + €2 booking fee.

NB: as there is a group cost for the guide, the tour will not go ahead if there are not enough payments in advance. In the event of a cancellation, anyone who has paid will be refunded.

GETTING THERE: The site is easy to reach by train from Ostiense San Paolo station.
