The Museum of the Walls of Rome is located within Porta Appia, better known as Porta San Sebastiano. Porta San Sebastianois one of the largest and best preserved of the Aurelian Walls, the fortified walls erected by emperor Aurelian at the end of the third century AD. The current setting illustrates the history and the architectonic transformations of the town walls from their origin to our days, through a didactic itinerary divided in sections (ancient, medieval and modern) supported by panels, plastic models and plaster casts. Some panels are dedicated to the previous walls of the Royal Age and to the history of the Via Appia. From the Museum the visitor can access the patrol path on the walls and walk through towers, maneuver chambers, and galleries for a good tract. The suggestive walk allows grasping the different building and defensive solutions that followed one another in the centuries, from the slits to the battlements, to the different rises. Videotapes on ancient Rome can also be played in a special projection room.

The "Chemin de ronde" can be visited during the museum opening times.
