The Museum is housed inside the Porta S. Sebastian of the Aurelian walls and offers visitors an educational itinerary focused on this important defensive system created in the 3rd century by Emperor Aurelian, and constantly restored throughout the rest of Rome’s history.
The view from the gate’s towers is wonderful and it is possible to walk along the walkways of the soldiers too.
