Trieste was founded by the Romans and was formerly called Tergeste and there are still probably many undiscovered remains form this period. It was thanks to general maintenance work that by chance a few years ago, the remains of this former Roman settlement, dating back to the 1st Century BCE, came to light. Between the second half of the 2nd Century BCE and the end of the 5th Century BCE, the site became a burial ground. Today, a display area is maintained for visitors, inside the so-called Torre di Donota where relics from excavation works carried out behind the Roman theatre have been kept. There are guided tours outside normal hours on request. This is the old part of the town next to San Giusto and Piazza dell'Unità d'Italia.
