  • A Roman-era port connecting the city to the Adriatic. This free entry park allows you to see many Roman ruins. Mostly in good shape. Surprising it was free to enter. Dogs also welcome to walk through. It's only open during daylight hours. Some descriptive signs inform you what you see. Highly recommend and a little away from the city's main sights.
  • Very nice Roman ruins. You can see lots of thing in Roman history. On the way to walk lots.of tree and wind you will feel relax..and if you keep straight walking will see the Basilica. Near there have many shops, bar and restaurant you can enjoy.
