Boat Cruise on the River Tiber to Ancient Ostia 

A journey into the everyday life in Ancient Rome

Ancient Ostia is a fantastic archaeological site just outside of Rome. Abandoned after the fall of Rome, Ostia was protected by the mud that was to eventually bury it. It lay safe, waiting to be rediscovered.   

A unique tour discovering the River Tiber outside the city walls, the Boat Cruise along the river is a pleasant and relaxing way to discover Rome’s sacred River: the Tiber. Along its way to the open sea, the River reveals the ruins of the past, a rich and vivid variety of birds and other animals living in this magic natural environment. The Cruise takes about 2 hours and along the trip, a small coffee break will be offered to our guests. Bigger than Pompeii, the harbor city of Ancient Ostia lies at the mouth of the River Tiber. It was founded as the very first colony of Rome in the 6th century BC and was completely abandoned in the 6th century AD. Its buildings, blocks, villas, thermal baths, temples of all religions, restaurants, and public toilets tell us the story of common people and their day-to-day life in the Roman age.
