Museo delle Mura Reviews
If you want to know how scared were the kind Romans of the bad asses barbarians : go there and see by yourself. 😀 also a very nice sightseeing of the land around Roma and of the via Appia antica . more »
It's really cool to explore and walk around this Roman wall - there's not much of a "museum", it's really just the entry point to the wall. But it's free, and there are virtually no tourists, so it's.... more »
Entrance is free. There's aircon and a toilet inside. The museum covers both towers of an old city gate and a long passage runing along city wall. There are models of ancient Rome and stages of Aurelian wall construction. Other than that the museum is suprisingly devoid of any information, to the point that I had to take out the phone and visit wikipedia to learn the history of the place, the walls and some architectural details. Fortifications are my thing so I enjoyed it a lot.
Best museum in Rome. Not as crowded as some places. Take your time.
