A walk around the outside of the walls takes in a stretch of the ancient walls that is still reasonably well-preserved.
This is where Porta Nomentana stood, where the Roman stretch of the same name started from.

Piazza Fiume
Always visible.

Demolished after being damaged during the fighting between the troops from Piedmont and the Papal troops in 1870, it was rebuilt by Vespignani in 1873, and definitively destroyed in 1921 for reasons of urban planning. Today, the layout of the original gate, built over the Roman stretch of the same name, is visible on the paving in piazza Fiume.

The gate is now closed, but the doorposts and eastern tower remain, 75 m to the east of the modern day Porta Pia, but the western tower was destroyed in 1827.
