Reviews Porta Maggiore
The Porta Maggiore, previously known as Porta Prenestina, is an eastern gate in the ancient Aurelian Walls of the Italian city of Rome.
The wall was built in the 3rd century. Two of the ancient roads namely the Via Labicana and the Via Praenestina ran through this gate. The gate was made before the wall by the emperor Claudius.
Despite being ancient, both the gate and the Aurelian Walls are well preserved. It is a must visit site for archeologists and history lovers.
