The House of the Crescenzi (also known as the House of Cola di Rienzo), located right across the street from the Temple of Portunus on Via del Teatro di Marcello, was built in the 10th century to control traffic along the Tiber River and across the Pons Aemilius. It's the oldest post-antiquity house still remaining in Rome. The building is closed to the public and visible only from the outside, but I think it's an interesting sight if you're right in the area anyhow.
