  • This landmark is situated a little away from the city centre and there are always crowds of tourists. Gate amaze with greatness and integrity. They are fully preserved. There are inscriptions in Latin. Nearby is an ancient tomb Baker Evrissaka. Quite an interesting and unusual monument. It's nice to stroll around this gate and admire them.

  • Does not have the glamour of the arches of the Colosseum, but is an excellent shows the functionality of the old city, emuralhada, who had their access defined. You have to be attentive in your surroundings due to the movement of "trams".

  • The Porta Maggiore was originally part of an aqueduct. In 52 B.c., the later Porta was built by Emperor Claudius, to improve the water supply of Rome. During the erection of the Aurelian wall at the end of the 3rd century was due to offer rush during erection of the wall of a number of existing historic buildings, such as the later Porta Maggiore, in this integrated.

  • An odd place Nice ruins. Good tram stop. Litter al over - Including a pile of shoes
  • Great underground cathedral i.e. Ipogeo (visit on request)
  • Beautiful place, a treat for only a few who are familiar with the location. A "Cathedral" romana rich in stuccoes and decorations at 12 meters below the ground, below the Roma-Cassino railway. Guides prepared and courteous explaining in detail the location and characteristics of this Cathedral lost in time. Absolutely worth visiting.

  • I spent 1 month to see this door every night, when I was studying in Rome, evokes "the ancients" memories

  • This place was found in the early ' 900, coincidentally, for a hole that opened. They're restoring now after 1 century. It's white, rich in stuccoes. Yes can visit on Sundays (the other days you work for restoration
