Via dell’Arco Romano, for its views and different restaurants where people enjoy the traditional dishes of Narni and more, is one of the most photographed streets of Narni.

The Roman arch, the emperor Nerva and the history of Narni.

Via dell’Arco Romano is characterized, on one side by the beautiful view of the narnese valley, on the other by the staircase that goes down to Piazza Garibaldi and passes under a Medieval Portal – caled Porta Superior – made with the materials of the ancient Roman door of which it preserves the foundation.

The door in the past had two entrances, but it is not easy to go back to the exact construction for the transformations made to the closest buildings and mainly for the Bishop’s Palace.
