We have done several tours with Walks Inside Rome over the years and each one has been fantastic. This year we took the Ostia Antica tour with fabulous guide, Barbara. She was so passionate about the site and Roman history. In 20+ years of visiting Rome I’ve never had the history all brought together the way she did. Throughout the tour we learned so much about Ostia and life there, but she also taught us how to read the symbolism and the colors in Roman art wherever we find it so we can understand more. She took extra time with us, seeing how enthralled we were with everything. I wish I could give this tour and Barbara more than 5 stars, because it truly exceeded any expectation. My husband works in logistics and he had always wanted to see this. After years of waiting, we felt we not only saw Ostia, but experienced it and we’re able to step into Roman life for a little while that morning. Barbara also pointed out the charming borgo inside the castle walls right outside the archaeological site. We had a wonderful meal in the peaceful place, surrounded by smiles and flowers. It was an unforgettable day that I would recommend to anyone. If the crowds of the city are too much for you, go to Ostia and you’ll experience a city incredibly preserved with wildflowers growing amid its ruins. Highly, highly recommend!!
Thank you so much, Barbara and Walks Inside Rome!
