B:Tivoli Villa d’Este & Hadrian’s Villa

It takes about 1.5 hours from the port to Tivoli. Tivoli is a small hill town about 30km northeast of Rome, known for its emperors and aristocrats' favorite villas since ancient Roman times. Three villas, Villa d'Este, Villa Adriana and Villa Gregoriana, are famous, but the former two are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Villa d'Este is a typical fountain garden of the late Renaissance, which is said to be the most beautiful in Italy. Villa Adriana is the site of the villa of Hadrian, the 14th Roman emperor. It was one of the largest villas ever built in the Roman Empire, even greater than the centre of Rome.

C:Ostia Antica & Roman Catacombs

It takes about 1 hour from the port to Ostia. Ostia Antica is an ancient city ruin built in the 4th century BC. Ostia, which prospered as a trading port, gradually declined and was finally buried in the earth and sand due to the flooding of the river, ending the long history of about 800 years. Thanks to the earth and sand, it is well preserved, and ruins of various ages are scattered on a large site with a total length of 1 km and a width of 500 m.
After Ostia, head along the Appian Way to the aqueduct, the Catacombs, and the Catacombs di San Callisto offers guided tours (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish). You can also stop by the Baths of Caracalla, built by the 22nd Emperor of the Roman Empire, Caracalla.
