Porta Romana

Surviving city gate

Save to my Account

Much of Florence’s city walls were demolished in the 19th century, but the Porta Romana, at the end of Via Romana, remains. From the gate, a section of the wall shoots north along Viale Francesco Petrarca. Following this section, on the inside of the wall (now a parking lot), you’ll find access to stairs that lead to the top of the gate.

Porta San Frediano, another surviving city gate, is about one kilometer north.
