Carsulae Roman ruins in Umbria, Italy


Carsulae is a quite well-preserved Roman city located in the Umbria countryside. Although not as spectacular as Pompeii and Herculaneum, Carsulae does nevertheless provide a readily comprehensible example of Roman city planning, with some of the major features of a Roman provincial city clearly visible. The forum, basilica, theatre, amphitheatre, ceremonial city gate, and paved and guttered streets are all well-preserved. There are no later buildings in the area to obscure the ruins, other than the palaeo-Christian Chiesa di San Damiano which is in any case an adapted Roman building.

Worth a brief visit. More about Carsulae.
