Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The remains of the ancient Roman city Urbs Salvia spread over an area of about 40 hectares. On the highest point of the site is the freshwater Reservoir, two long tunnels which secured a permanent water supply for the urban settlement.Proceeding downwards, the imposing Roman Theatre, built on a Greek model, and a niched building.At the foot of the hill is the Sanctuary complex dedicated to goddess Salus Augusta, where you can still see frescoes in the 3rd Pompeiian style. Just outside the city walls, two funeral monuments and the Amphitheatre, one of the best preserved examples of this type in Le Marche.

“Urbs salvia”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

It's a very complete site with mosaics, wall paintings, amphitheatre and other remains but, as a lot of things in Marche, with limited opening and if , like me , you're not confident in your ability to phone to arrange a tour, it is very frustrating to not be able to access the park.

Thanks for your review!

Unfortunately, Le Marche has not a great number of visitors, so it's quite difficult for us to arrange the access to the park throughout the year.
For the moment, we are able to open the park every day in summer, maybe in the future we can extend opening hours if there are more visitors. We'll try!
