Buried for centuries by sand, this port-town is remarkably well preserved. Ruins of shops, baths, offices, taverns, houses, temples and the Ostia theater can still be seen.

Here we will enjoy the complete picture of life under the Roman Empire, discovering the layout of a Roman town built along its main road as our guide recreates the daily scene of busy tradesmen pursuing their business under the porticoes, hurrying slaves, jostling carriages and carts, and citizens bustling about the town centre in the shops and civic buildings around the forum.

Today this romantic and nostalgic site rivals the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum and provides an opportune substitute for those families who want to see the excavations of an ancient Roman city without having to travel for miles.
