Rome, Clivus Scauri


Clivus Scauri: ancient street on the Roman hill Caelius.

Clivus Scauri

The street from the church of SS. Giovanni e Paolo on the Caelian hill is connected to the Palatine through the Clivus Scauri. To support the northern street front - which was later included in the medieval church - seven arches were built. The most western one dates back to the third century CE. Access to the Clivus Scauri was (and is) obtained through the Arch of Dolabella.
