An arena, spas, and the palaestra the wrestling school are in the first. In the second is a magnificent Roman-Byzantine necropolis, with many sarcophagi, funerary buildings and enclosures, and chapels. The monumental arch is impressive, as is 2nd-century racetrack one of the biggest in the Roman world, it could hold up to 20,000 people, and it now hosts a summer music festival.
