The main road, via SR 352, which enters the city, still follows the Roman road and passes between the colonnade of the ancient forum. During the early Middle Ages, the Huns ravaged the city. The inhabitants took refuge on the islands off the coast of Grado, after having hidden their wealth at the bottom of a well... This treasure, which has never been found, still fires the popular imagination.
In the region, Palmanova, Cividale del Friuli and Aquileia have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. In the harmonious historic centre, you can visit the archaeological sites and museum, and the 11th century basilica which houses mosaics from late antiquity.
