  • Looks way at St. John Lateran or to catch the bus to the catacombs but more in an area with enough traffic, this lower door belonged to the wall sprawling from the III century dc

  • Porta Asinaria is a gate of the Aurelian walls of Rome. The is the only among the ancient doors of Rome, to simultaneously have cylindrical towers flanked by square towers

  • The Porta Asinaria, though unknown to most Romans, has witnessed important historical events for about fifteen hundred years, and, together with the Porta San Sebastiano, which can be accessed to the towers and the walkway. Although not originally probably one of the main entrances of the city wall aureliana, has seen increasing its importance with the Papal Lateran settlement and because of its location just south of the city was a vital defensive Renaissance until the opening of the nearby Porta San Giovanni. The visit, which makes the entrance possible inside the towers and defensive structures and an unusual view of the surrounding area, may be joining associations or making reservations for small groups at the Soprintendenza archeologica.

  • A beautiful port in the old city wall.
  • nice gate of Aurelian Wall
  • good place to walk from one side of the wall to the other
  • Below the current street level, the port is a little hidden and easily escapes the visitor little noticed Question instead of an important testimony of the past being the original gateway to Rome in the area. It is in fact earlier than porta San Giovanni, as it goes back to a time when the Basilica did not exist from the doors leads to a small path on the upper walls and guard towers, which offers a splendid view of the Basilica

  • One of the most complex and architecturally structured of the Aurelian; very central, near the historic market v. Sannio.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
