Servian Wall in Rome

Show Map
The Servian Wall was the first wall around Rome, built around the 3rd Century BC. This well-preserved section gives a good opportunity to see the construction methods used at that time, involving the use of blocks of tufa rock.
Address: Via di Sant' Anselmo
Directions: Follow the Viale Aventino from Circo Massimo. At Piazza Albania take the very small road to the right after the Esso gas station. The wall is 50m up the road under a roof.
