Relatively unknown but definitely worth a visit

"Ostia Antica is a relatively unknown part of ancient Rome history but definitely worth a visit! We booked the private tour which included transport from our hotel. If you are interested in ancient roman history this place is a must. We were fortunate that there were no crowds on the day we went and we had an amazing guide - Guilia - who was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the site and the Romans in general. If you have the time, take a trip with LivItaly out to Ostia Antica!"
