游览扬州赫赫有名的东关街，就要先经过东门遗址。 东门遗址修建于唐朝，历朝历代都曾在扬州要塞修建城墙，巩固边防。如今这些城墙的根基都只剩下断壁残垣，在钢化玻璃的掩盖下，游客匆匆而过，偶尔也会观摩。历史，可以淹没于尘土，终究不会忘却与尘埃。 如今重新修建的东门遗址像一座郁郁葱葱的大花园，也是游客聚集之广场。城墙高高耸立，痕迹纵然斑驳，两侧着火红的横幅，感受到扬州温婉秀丽之余的热情好客。 著名旅行家马可波罗也是从东门城墙进入扬州，开启了一段与扬州三年的神奇缘分，因此广场上也有马可波罗的纪念雕像。 另外印象深刻的还有诸位革命历史人物雕像和古时大炮炮台等遗址。扬州在历史长河中也历经战乱，颠肺流离。缅怀先烈，珍惜和平。 东门遗址，万千沧桑。惟愿现世安稳，无战止争。
