Porta Maggiore is one of the eastern gates in the Aurelian Wall of Rome. Two roads passed through it, the Via Prenestina, heading east, and Via Casilina heading southeast. The gate was originally known as Porta Pernestina after one of those roads. Sometime after the...More

Lovely hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, always tried their best to answer any questions and directions to the metro. Great location, the metro is only a 10 mins walk away and it’s only around 10 mins to the main monuments on the metro. It’s only...More

Porta Maggiore was part of an aqueduct, built by emperor Claudius in the year 52. He embellished it with some propaganda material to show his greatness as well. The arch was a sort of meeting point of two aqueducts and it also became part of...More

The staf was very nice. The room was small and furniture dated but the bed was very comfy. Food was ok. The biggest flaw was that the walls wern't soundproofed. We heard everything through paper thin walls.

This is one of the last remaining aqueducts in the world. There is a local park and there are no tourists just locals. Very enjoyable and do not understand why more people are not there. Take a bus and drops you off right there.

We stayed for 5 nights and found it very noisey so had to shut the shutters at night, air conditioning was only turned on between 3 - 9pm. Clean rooms with a safe and trams are just over the road.

I came across this gate to ancient Rome on a tram trip to the suburbs. Alight from the tram and just marvel that this structure is still standing after 2,000 years. It is at the heart of a transport interchange, which makes it easily accessible...More

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s

its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
