Visit Piazza Ostiense and San Paolo Basilica in Rome
The old city walls south of the Aventin, designate the borders of the present day city as well. A section of the ancient city walls is still visible on the Piazza Ostiense along with the city gate Porto Ostiense. It is just like the gate of a medieval castle and the road towards Ostia ran between its bastions.
Across the square is the railway section from where you can get there by train too. The Pyramid of Seistuis was raised in memory of Tribune Gaius Cestius Epulo in 12 B.C. The 27 meter high Egyptian style tomb has remained remarkably intact for posterity to see. Despite the fact that is the oldest structure in Rome, a liberated slave had it built to honor his master who made him his heir. The inscription commemorates that in Latin, not far from the pyramid stands the San Paolo Fouri la Mura Basilica and monastery. This is the second largest church in Rome after the St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.
In 1823 it was almost completely destroyed by a great fire and the reconstruction took six years. Its façade is decorated by mosaics, in the richly ornamented monumental interior it is really worth taking a look at the artifacts that survived the fire. The monstrance of Arnolfo Di Cambio, the candle holder of Asaleto and the mosaic of the Abbey depicting Christ and the disciples.
