Overview

Along Via XX Settembre, to the left of the cathedral, you can see the remains of the ancient Roman city. In particular, the remains of the Roman Theatre are visible, though partially covered by the new wing of the Royal Palace. The imposing Palatine Gate with its two towers rises up next to the Roman walls. It was one of the entrances to the city and, as such, represents one of the best preserved examples of a Roman gate. Through the centuries it has been a residence of noblemen and also at one time housed a women's prison.
