The Roman walls are much like any of the walled cities in Italy. They were constructed to keep their citizens safe from outside attacks or infiltration. A concept most citizens still support.

The Roman walls are varied in size, materials and location. At times it is difficult to tell if the walls are part of the City walls or part of a palace wall. One of the more interesting wall locations is at Pyramid Station on the...More

You are likely to see Roman walls all over Rome. They are in many parts of the city, in the centre and further afield. They are a reminder of times past. They were built over time by various emperors for defensive purposes.

These aren't really worth a special trip, unless you really are interested in ancient walls, or Roman history, but there's something really awe inspiring about them. Maybe it's the fact that this is Rome, and these are the same walls that that have protected the...More

The good thing about the walls are that they show how big the city was 1700 years ago, when emperor Aurelian built them. Their function was to keep the city safe from barbarian raids - a function they did not accomplish to the fullest. They...More

The walls were built around 270 year. There are quite well-preserved remains of them, which can be seen as you explore the city.
