Monuments and places of interest

The city is traditionally divided into an upper city, the ancient city center with the acropolis, which developed further in medieval times, and a lower city, the result of an initial expansion in Roman times, along the road to the port, and of a second expansion which took place mainly in the 19th and 20th centuries, following the reclamation of the Pontine marshes by Pope Pius VI in the 18th century and later by Mussolini.
