Sections of the wall are still in place and the history behind it is amazing. Imagine how many battles may have took place or who actually lived behind the wall. What emperors? Who famous in Roman history actually walked the walls to defend it.

Anyone going to the Vatican would come across these walls. Great architecture! There are a few restaurants surrounding so it is a nice walk to or from lunch.

The Romans preferred to fortified cities rather than fortresses. The Servian Wall was built in the 4th century B.C. and was about 10 kilometers long, up to ten meters high and almost four meters wide at its base. It was replaced with the Aurelian Wall built in the 3rd century which enclosed the seven hills of Rome and the Trastevere... More

Walk to the Roman Walls - then see the walls from car to get views from both perspectives. Quite interesting to imagine ancient history.

Roman walls were around Rome to protect the city; There were very long and you can see many in very good condition and also many Towngates to entrance to the city.

This picture is of the Passetto near the Vatican and I do recommend that if you can take the night tour which allows you to visit Castel Sant'Angelo and then lets you walk along the Passetto which was an escape route for the Pope from the Apostolic Palace to the Castel.
