The city of Rome had two river ports in its modern history: the Porto di Ripo Grande and the Porto di Ripetto. Though both have largely disappeared and been forgotten, a few pieces of the Porto di Ripetto remain today.
At the end of the 19th century, most of the buildings and constructions alongside the Tiber (and at the river’s level) were demolished during the construction of the Lungotevere, or Tiber waterfront. Retaining walls, or muraglioni, were built to prevent overflow from the river’s recurring floods. The memory of the structures that once lined the river were often only preserved in the name of roads and squares.
