Roma: Day 2

On the second day, we headed out to the Museo delle Mura. It was included with the Roma Pass, but also free on Sunday. It is located inside former “Porta Appia”, known today as “Porta S. Sebastiano.”


The interior was decorated with various artifacts.


The Museo delle Mura displays one of the most captivating expanses of the Aurelian walls erected at the end of the 3rd century AD, thus illustrating the story of these ancient fortifications.


The lady working in the musuem was nice enough to take us to the top so we could see the amazing view.

Some of the historic floors had been restored. There was also a few places were the original parts of the decorations could be seen.

 On the way to Tiber Island, we saw a few more temples.


Near Tiber Island you can see the Pons Aemilius, it once spanned the Tiber in 2 BC. 


We walked to the Pantheon. It is very beautiful, however extremely crowded.


The trevi fountain was under repair. I was a little disappointed.


Finally we arrived at the spanish steps.


After a long day, we found gelati and headed home. We got some takeout pizza and headed back to the hotel.
