Those that are fond of exploring historic sites would be interested in walking around the city's oldest district of Cimavilla. Archaeologists still continue to work at the district; a number of interesting findings were excavated there. There are ancient baths of the Roman Empire and ruins of pre-historic buildings among them. There is also the old port founded in the 16th century.
The most important architectural landmark of the city is Gigon University that is still working now. This massive complex of ancient buildings strikes with its elegance and grandeur. Built in the middle of the last century, the architectural complex covers an area of 27 hectares. In addition to an abundance of beautiful buildings, there are small parks and tree-lined avenues, a walk through which will give a lot of impressions.
