Ancient Ostia

What could be better than spending a day walking among the ruins of Ostia Antica, the largest archaeological site of the city of Rome? Your driver and official guide or your expert driver/guide will be waiting in the lobby of your hotel to start this little ride along the famous "sea route" built by Mussolini in the 1930s. After about 30 minutes, you're ready to jump back in time imagining how approximately 75,000 people spent their lives in Ostia Antica. Ostia was erected in the fourth century BCE as a military camp, and later developed as a port from the first century AD by the emperor Claudius. Walking on the ancient Roman road, you will be delighted to see famous monuments such as the theater Temple of Hercules, (where 4000 people could see shows and still in use today), the Necropolis and the oldest synagogue in Europe.
After visiting ancient Ostia, it would be ideal to finish off your day by spending some time on the beach, perhaps having lunch at a local restaurant where fresh fish is never lacking, and the wine of the Castelli Romani enhances the taste. If you are drained of all your energy, however, the only thing you need to do is sit back and rest while enjoying the journey back to Rome.
