Alba Fucens

Overview

Alba Fucens bears one of its characteristics in its name (the word Alba means high ground): it is located at an altitude of about 1000 m and is one of the highest Roman cities in Italy. The walls defending the settlement date back to between the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC. Reconstruction work on the city brought some of the Roman buildings to light: the basilica, the Forum and the thermopolium, a drinks shop, the counter of which can still be seen. The area of the Baths is very old and was rebuilt perhaps in the very first centuries AD, with the addition of mosaics. The amphitheatre was carved out of the slopes of the hill of St. Peter's.
