The Museum is situated inside the S. Sebastiano Gate of the Aurelian Walls and offers visitors an educational visit which was created in 1990, although the monument has been used in a more or less similar way since much earlier.

Take a bus or taxi to the museum and a walk on the wall. Good for a morning(Museum only open until 1:00pm)tour and then head to another attraction after lunch. No need to book a guide.

The main asset of the museum is the great views of Rome from the top terrace of the museum. Free entry. Good stop if you are cycling. No need to go there though, just for this museum. This museum has plenty of stairs.

Very easy to get there with bus 118 from piazza Venezia, stop at bottom of Ara Coeli. Free entrance. Closing time 14 (they allow you in max at 13.30). Truly wonderful to walk along the walls (only covered level). Beautiful view from upper tower.

Free entrance. Start of Appian Way. Nice to be able to walk on the walls that you see everywhere in Rome. If you are then going onto the Appian Way for the Catacombs I would suggest that you take the 118 bus from the bus...More

We walked down the cobbled road to the Aurelian Walls Museum built into the walls themselves. The Aurelian Walls of Rome encompass most of the old city and are in remarkably good condition. Just before we got to the main gate in the Walls where...More
