The Aurelian Walls is a line of city walls built between 271 and 275 in Rome during the reign of the Roman Emperors Aurelian and Probus.

The walls enclosed all the seven hills of Rome plus the Campus Martius and, on the right bank of the Tiber, the Trastevere district. The river banks within the city limits appear to have been left unfortified although they were certainly fortified along the Campus Martius.
