Porta Maggiore

The Porta Maggiore, which translates to “Larger Gate” in English, is one of the eastern gates in the Aurelian Walls of Rome, Italy. The Porta Maggiore is constructed out of limestone, was built in the year 52 by Emperor Claudius, and was made a part of the Aurelian Wall in 271. This gate is known as one of the best spots in Rome to get a view of the ancient system of aqueducts that once ran through the city. These ruins are some of the best-preserved in Rome and a must-visit for those interested in ancient architecture and engineering.

  • Explore the exterior of the Porta Maggiore and walk beneath the white limestone double archway, where two ancient channels of the Rome aqueducts once converged.
  • Check out the Tomb of the Baker near the Porta Maggiore and see one of the most interesting burial sites in Rome, as it is built in the shape of an oven to honour bakers.
  • Walk around the Piazza di Porta Maggiore, the square where the gate is located, and you will see a collection of interesting sculptures as well as many great spots to people watch.

Rome is a city filled with ruins worth seeing, so one of the best ways to enjoy the Porta Maggiore is by taking a guided tour through the city. This way you will not miss any of the sites and will have an expert guide to tell you about the historic relevance of each location. Those who want to use the train should get off at the Termini station, just a short walk from the Porta Maggiore as well as several other important Rome attractions. Walking is the best way to see all of the sights in Rome.
