    There are longer walls in China and higher walls in Constantinople but these walls, well these walls speak to you of great men and gathering danger. Although there are many modern automobile-widened gates there are also many long stretches of quiet, grassy, and private areas in which to contemplate the effort required to breach these imposing walls. Do yourself a favor and spend some quality time with these walls.

    This bustling covered market in Quadraro occupies a huge hall with well over a hundred stalls selling produce of every imaginable kind. We were amazed at the freshness of produce on sale here. Cheeses, wines, delis, fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and fish, there was so much to see. Definitely worth a visit for an authentic Italian market experience.

    I stayed in area as the accomadation was cheaper than the center and after a few days started to appricate the location more.

    Getting here is easy there is a train that gets you to and from the airport close by for 8euros.

    It is 4 stops away from the central station on Line A and you can get to both the Vatican and Collisum within 30mins.

    The singe metro ticket is 1.5euros which can be used on both buses and metro for a combined single journey. We spent 6 euros each day once a return trip in the morning and once in the evening so no day pass needed.

    There are a few supermarkets , cafes , shops and a McDonald's closely and other maller shops also has a few nice places to eat locally.

    One free afternoon we even walked to the colloseum (35mins).

    Nobody knows this place, but it’s unique and unforgettable. You will miss the best if you don’t enter in these ancient tombs decorated with breathtaking embellishment. Some free tours managed by the archeologists of the cultural heritage Authority.

    The Salesians of Don Bosco wanted to build a school on the Via Tuscolna like the Salesian Institute in via Marsala in Rome.
    Pope Pius XI gave his consent but at the same time wanted a church to be built next to the school.
    Thus on June 4, 1929, immediately after the beatification of Don Bosco, the first stone of the new church dedicated to Mary, Help of the Christians was laid next to the "Pius XI" school.
    The church has a Latin cross plan which measures m. 72 in the major arm and m. 42 in the shorter arm.
    The style is that of the great Roman churches of the Renaissance, and is frescoed as such.
    Don Giuseppe Melle is the painter called to decorate the church of S. Maria Ausiliatrice. He worked for eight years without rest, and in 1964 the work was completed.
    The very central 'theme' of his work is Mary, and the first church of Maria Ausiliatrice built in Turin, the city in Piedmont, which was the region of St. John Bosco.
    All around there is the great story of the victories of Christianity with the help of Mary, against the invasion attempts of the Turks.
    It is an imposing and majestic church.
    On the outside it has some similarities with the church of the Santissima Trinita' dei Monti for the presence of the two lateral bell towers.
    Inside it has no great special artistic elements. Perhaps too many frescoes can distract visitors' eyes.
    Interesting is the small chapel of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which is located to the left of the main altar.
    Certainly it is a church of great religious devotion and spirituality, it is above all a place of social gathering and great spirituality very typical of the Salesian churches.

    In Rome it's not so easy to see ancient walls so well conserved. The views on the walls are great and the gardens have a bar where you can refresh by looking either the walls or watching the San Giovanni square and the stunning facade of the Basilica.

    Average to be honest for tourists, but being my home for about 40 years I am biased of course. On the positive side, not mentioned by others, are plants and trees, some of which beatiful and rare. For example two magnificent trees of Ginkgo biloba, a kind of fossil tree with unique fan-shaped leaves. They fade color in autumn and they are really beatiful. On the negative side, almost all the rest, no maintanance, gardening, and control. People can be nice (more daytime), or not so nice (mostly late evening, night). Boys play football crazily in the space around (forbidden to traffic but spoiled) because there are no dedicated zones.
