Roselle Archaeological Site The Best of Both Worlds
Those seeking a taste of both ancient Etruscan and Roman history need look no further than Roselle. This originally Etruscan city boasts a dynamic history, having been conquered by the Romans in 294 B.C., with influences from both civilizations visible in this fascinating archaeological site. Some of the most impressive elements of the site include the city wall, built by the Etruscans between the 7th and 6th centuries B.C., the 1st-century Roman amphitheatre, which is the only one known among Etruscan coastal towns, the House of the Mosaics, a 1st-century temple, and the Thermal Baths - a complex system of canals and tunnels with elaborate brick arches. The impressive remains are situated on a hill with two summits – one of which is occupied by the amphitheatre, and the other by a tower of uncertain providence. The area saw an impressive level of development before being abandoned in the Middle Ages, and is a must-see for history buffs and travel enthusiasts alike.
