Transfers

  • Your guide will meet you at your hotel and take you by public transport to the site in Ostia. This trip takes approximately one hour, depending on the location of your hotel. The tour will end at the Ostia Antica site, after which you will have a return ticket for the train to return to Rome, which you can use by yourself later, if you wish to remain in Ostia after the tour, or your guide can accompany you to the train if you wish to return to Rome immediately.

Why book a private tour?

  • Do you have a wheelchair, or child stroller? No problem for us on a private tour, as we do not have to consider other people as would be the case on a group tour, but do please advise us of this in the comments section when making your booking, as the guide does need to plan the best route for you.
