Aurelian Walls/ Porta San Sebastiano
The Aurelian Walls, so named after the emperor who decided to build them in order to defend the city, have come down to us preserving the charm of Ancient Rome. Walking along these walls you can enjoy all the beauty of the Eternal city and the history that have characterized them: in Porta San Sebastiano - which is one of its best preserved doors - you can make an exclusive visit to what was once the residence of the secretary of the fascist party in the 40s.
The history of Rome is immense and you can see it not only in its most imposing and majestic monuments, but also in its catacombs, the ancient burial sites. There are famous ones in Rome, but those that we propose are closed to the public. However, exceptionally for you, archaeologists and experts will be the guides in these mysterious and unique places in the world.
Once the residence of Cardinal Scipione- from whom it took its name-, built in 1600 and immersed in the wonderful park of Villa Borghese, which is loved and frequented by Romans and tourists, the Galleria Borghese hosts works of inestimable value. Its collection has been defined among " the most beautiful in the world ". In fact, it is possible to admire the sculptures by Bernini and Canova, the paintings by Caravaggio and Raffaello Sanzio.
