During our time together, I will bring the ancient city to life as we pick our way through 2000-year-old apartment complexes, visit a bygone restaurant, and learn about bizarre religious cults. Why Ostia Antica instead of Pompeii? There are three reasons, 1) Ostia it's much closer and easier to visit (25-minute train ride); 2) Ostia is a better example of a real, working class town than Pompeii; 3) visiting Ostia has a lower carbon footprint than visiting Pompeii, and given the crowds at the latter and general "undiscovered" feeling of the former, it's a more enjoyable, enriching experience. We begin our Ostia Antica Tour in Rome, at Piramide Metro B station, with a short 25 minutes train ride toward the Mediterranean sea. Along the way, I will discuss the regional geography of the area, Ostia's role as Rome's port, and the historic background leading up to the town's rise in the Imperial era.

Your guide to Rome

Where do locals hang out in Rome?


Within walking distance to the Colosseum, Monti is a neighborhood where you can expect to find family-run trattorias, gorgeous fountains, and trendy boutiques. The best part about this bustling area is that it feels almost hidden in plain sight in the central historic district.

Villa Borghese

If you want to be a coin’s toss away from the central action, but get some peace and quiet, this low-key park is one way to fulfill that. Situated between the historic center and the residential neighborhood of Parioli, this is arguably Rome’s most beautiful park. It’s also a great way to start or end a visit to the Borghese Gallery and Museum which houses 1st–3rd centuries AD artifacts, neoclassical sculptures, and more.

Parco degli Acquedotti

Just outside of Rome sits this runner’s or cyclist’s paradise, not to mention one for the laid-back locals who don’t mind taking a train or car ride to get to it. Two ancient aqueducts, once used to carry drinking water from the mountains into the city, create a dramatic backdrop against the grassy fields. Parco degli Acquedotti is part of the Appian Way Regional Park for those who want to explore more of the Italian countryside just outside of the city.

What are unique things to do in Rome?

Cook with local chefs

Handmade pasta with an Italian grandmother. Traditional cooking techniques learned in the former granary of the Vatican. Pizza making along Rome’s oldest road. These are just some of the Airbnb Experiences that bring you that much closer to Italy, one dish at a time.

See Rome at night

As the night falls, and the crowds start to dissipate, it’s as if Rome’s top attractions beam with relief on a break from another busy day. See an illuminated Colosseum, Emperor's Forums, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and Piazza Navona, among others iconic landmarks, on foot or by electric bike with local guides who also show you the hidden gems. For those looking for something darker, go on a ghosts and legends walking tour to learn an alternative side to Rome’s history.

Take a Trastevere food tour

Walk the cobblestoned lanes in search of cured meats, cheeses, pizza, and supplì (think croquettes) with a local foodie as your guide. The bohemian neighborhood is still one of the most beloved and delicious areas to visit in Rome.

Go truffle hunting

Yes, when in Rome, you’ll want to say you’ve seen the Vatican, but how many people can say they went truffle hunting? Join an expert on a short train ride north of Rome to explore the forest with trained professionals: truffle-hunting dogs. After foraging, you’ll get to learn the best cooking techniques for truffles.

Kayak on Lago Albano

Head out with single or double kayaks to enjoy Roman history out in nature. City natives take you out for fun and lesser-known facts on the water, even pointing out the Pope’s springboard along the way.
