Overview
More
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.

In have been to a great deal of Roman ruins of late (in Turkey and Israel) and this was no disappointment. You get a good feeling for how culturally alive and sophisticated a pre-Christian Roman town was. There is a lot to uncover there, but...More

What an amazing find! Whilst wandering around the hilltop town of Urbisaglia one evening we nipped into the Tourist Information office to check out the sites and the guy behind the desk said he could show us an old Roman water reservoir. Intrigued, we agreed...More

I so wanted to love this place. Certainly the guides are really good but they concentrate on the temple and the amphitheater. These buildings are on one side of the site and are well maintained. I wanted to see the theatre which looks in good...More

Urbs Salvia is a small archeological side but a very interesting one. Two young guides provide a very good tour of the area with very informative assistance. A good visit.
