  • Porta San Sebastiano is one of the gates of the Aurelian wall. This beautifully preserved inside and out where you will see a (free access) Museum and a tour of its towers, battlements and walls; highly recommended. From this door part the Via Appia Antica, all a ride of up to 8 km by sections of an of them more important booted Roman, that you transported to others times. I recommend making the ride on bike (rentable at different points of the route to €3 the hour), you find bars and restaurants in the area as well as numerous sources of fresh water.

  • A trip within the Aurelian walls. (272-274) Are 19 km built in just two years, incorporating in walls, existing buildings, like the pyramid of cestius. Megagalittica construction that resisted ca. 2,000 years. Now it risks slumping thoughtlessness and the proliferation of trees and bushes grown into walls. Very interesting experience, starting from the view you can enjoy from that height. Free admission, consider a donation to the exit.

  • Porta San Sebastiano, formerly called "Porta Appia" for the name of the street from this came out, is the most great and best preserved of the Aurelian walls. In it we recognise 5 phases, respectively related to Aurelian (271-275 ad), a second makeover that consisted in expansion of two semicircular towers, a third period in which they were created the great stands that incorporate the towers themselves, a fourth period related to some interior accommodations and a last period in which they were raised towers and intermediate casing of a plan. It also opens the "Museo delle Mura", Museum that gives visitors a trail suitable for tourists, teachers and students. I know that in November 2016 will be provided for the workshop "as the Legionnaires", first hand experience to learn about the life of garrisons,
