Civic Archaeological Museum and Roman theatre

The Convent of San Girolamo, built in the 15th century behind the Roman theatre and once used as a hospitalization centre for the sick, has recently undergone skilful restoration work.It has re-opened in 2015 and hosts, in its renewed halls, a pristine collection of ancient Roman findings. Statues, columns that once adorned the portico (crowning the cavea – the seating section of the Arena), tombstones, inscriptions, objects, ornaments and jewels offer the visitor a unique snapshot of the Roman daily life, as well as the admirable artistic and engineering artefacts distinguishing the Roman civilization. The large terrace is particularly noteworthy, giving the tourist a splendid view of the city.
