Neighbourhood: Aventine
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.

Not much there
Nov 2016 • Couples
Don't waist your time. We went there as a early morning walk. Porta Capena is just a big park and I never did figure out what the ruins were. There is lots of people walking their dogs without leashes. Also watch where you walk as no one cleans up after them. Best advice is to visit something else.

Not much to see
Mar 2017 • Solo
Porta Capena was a gate and the piazza where it stood is just a small patch with a few bricks or stones, probably what's left of the gate or some other structure.
Not much is known and though the place may have some historical significance, there's nothing really worth making the trip there to see it.

Non discript
Jul 2016
A non discript, non-existing monument ruin. I looked up on trip advisor to what was in the area and this was a pin. However the pictures don't particularly show anything nor does the pin location?! The Circus Massimo however is large and grand and at a similar location.

Non descript

This massive but non descript ancient Roman ruin lies beside and is easily viewed while visiting Circus Maximus. Of note, but given its surroundings not worthy of an investment of time.
