The remains of the Roman Walls found throughout Rome are a captivating sight. But most people don’t know they can actually walk along the Ancient Roman Walls at the Museo delle Mura (Museum of the Walls). The museum is housed in Porta San Sebastiano, one of the largest and best preserved parts of the Aurelian Walls. Words cannot describe how fun this museum is to experience. A visit begins by going up staircase to rooms displaying the history of the walls. There are models displaying how the walls  grew higher and stronger as increased fortifications were needed to meet the advancements in weapons over time.  From there the real fun beings, as you can walk the parapets and view arrow slits. Those with an active imagination may feel like they are in a time machine. The climb to the top of the tower via a spiral staircase offers one of the best views of Rome, including one of the Appia Antica.

Our honeymoon has been amazing! Much of that is because of all the help from Melissa & Francois. They not only dealt with our lost luggage but made wonderful recommendations on things to do, other cities to see and places to go. We will be back to visit this beautiful city and when we do will be staying at Nicolas Inn.
