Aurelian Walls, Rome: 28 reviews and 48 photos
All around the city you will find some parts of the city walls. The biggest walls which are still visible were started by Emeperor Aurelian. The work was completed under his successor Probus. The wall made of brick is 6 metres high and 3.5 metres thick. There were sqaure towers every 30 metres. The total lenghth of the walls is about 19 km. There is a museum about the city walks, where you also have the chance to climb up in a tower and enjoy the view from the wall. Check out my Museo della Murra off the beaten path tip.
Directions: All around the city. To see the gate pictured, take the metro to Piramide.
