Countryside Of Rome
The tour has been designed for guests who have already seen the beauties of Rome and are looking for a wonderful excursion in the Countryside.
Once you are greeted at your accommodation at 9.00 am, after 40 minutes driving through surrounding area near the western cost, you will arrive to Ostia Antica, Rome’s ancient seaport, lies 20 miles from the modern metropolis, in the meadows between the Tiber River and the Tyrrhenian Sea.It was founded, probably in the 4th century BC, as a military colony to guard the river mouth against seaborne invasions. Later, during the centuries when virtually all imports reached the Capital via the Tiber, Ostia gained prominence as the domestic landing for cargo boats. By the 2nd century AD, it had become a flourishing commercial center inhabited by upwards of 100,000 people, whose apartment buildings, taverns, and grocery shops are still intact. Although Ostia now sprawls over 10,000 acres, around a main street that runs for more than a mile, it is still easy to imagine the local shepherds who for centuries sheltered their animals amongst its ruins, for they are an integral part of the tranquil Roman countryside.No modern houses, roads or telephone wires are visible on the horizon. The streets are so quiet one hears only the crickets..With your personal Tour Guide, you will see the amazing ,frescoes, Mosaic floor in the public and private baths, The theatre dating from the 2nd century AD , Ancient Temples, warehouses, old shops, roman condominiums,the Forum, the Senate ect.
