What to Expect

On this full day bike trip from Rome to Ostia Antica we will cycle through fields and roman countryside on our way. The ancient roman port ‘Ostia Antica’ is situated along the course of where the Tiber river used to flow, different to where it now flows as the area silted up and the old port and adjacent town abandoned and buried over the centuries.

Thanks to this Ostia Antica is a perfectly preserved roman town; complete with floor and wall mosaics, an amphitheater, shops and peoples homes makes this archaeological site an excellent example of ancient roman living conditions and daily life.

Participants on this ride will be provided with a guided tour of Ostia Antica as well as snacks and lunch along the way. 

The return journey will be by train, the station being ideally located outside the entrance to Ostia Antica.

  • Guided Visit of Ostia Antica
  • Typical Roman style picnic
  • Completely traffic free
  • Views of the sea
