The gate was originally known as Porta Pernestina after one of those roads. Sometime after the Middle Ages the gate became known as Porta Maggiore, perhaps because the road that runs through the gate leads to Santa Maria Maggiore. It is a 32-foot-tall monumental double archway built of white travertine. It was built adjacent to the pre-existing Tomb of Eurysaces, the Baker, which was constructed between 50 BC and 20 BC. This is still visible from the outside of the gate. Half of the aqueducts of ancient Rome came into the city at this point, and were distributed from here throughout the city. Claudius built the original gate in 52 AD. It was only used to support the Aqua Claudia and Anio Nova who crossed Via Praenestina and Via Labicana.

I did have some issues with this place but they were very small ones and for some people probably not a issue for them. First, there was a terrible smell in our room. I don’t know what it was, but everything looked clean. Secondly it’s a noisy hotel, you can hear people above scraping their chairs on the floor and the street noise was constant. It was difficult to sleep because the bathroom door was made of glass. The iron and ironing board were not available in the room. I could have asked for one, but we had to climb 2 flights to get to reception so I couldn’t bother. They don’t have tea trays to replenish and they use plastic sticks to stir the tea instead of spoons.

Pope Gregory IV (827-44) is recorded as having refitted the papal apartment next to the chapel, the location where the pope actually slept, washed and dressed. In mediaeval times, the basilica was surrounded by a vast array of subsidiary buildings. To the south was the monasterium, which was the residence of the priestly canons who officiated at the basilica. To the east was the sprawling patriarchium. It was the actual residence of popes. To the east of the court was a warren of buildings which was the palace proper, which also contained most of the curial offices administered by the papacy at the time.

If you face the Porta Maggiore’s interior, you will be able to see the Aqua Claudia or Aqua Anio Novus in the distance ahead and to your right. Peek through an archway and you’ll see the aqueduct going off on the far side of the gate, slightly to the right. The water which reaches this point has flowed along that aqueduct for about 4 or 5 miles, from Aqueduct Park, where the Aqua Claudia is most impressive after having flowed quite a distance underground from its source. The Aqua Neroniano was constructed to divert water from the main flow of Aqua Claudia at this sharp right turn. If you walk through the wall at this point and turn around to face back toward the now-hidden Porta Maggiore, you can see the view in the photo below. The vast nave – 12 meters by 60 meters – is divided into five aisles by a forest of 80 columns that lead your eye up to the triumphal arch, lined with fifth-century mosaics, and to the altar and the apse.
