  • A piece of old Rome, quaint, scenic and very beautiful.
  • Impressive but you can't climb up there.
  • Impressive walls. Free museum inside the gates. It is possible to go up to the towers.
  • 2000 years and still standing...
  • Cool to visit on your way down the Via Appia. There is a museum that lets you go in the Porta San Sebastian here but we just missed it as it closes at 2pm.
