An introduction to the town of Aquileia in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Northern Italy. Two-thousand years ago it was one of the most important cities in Roman Italy. Today it is a World Heritage archaeological site.
Aquileia ruins, Udine, Italy - one of the largest and wealthiest cities of the Early Roman Empire, was destroyed by Attila in the mid-5th century. Most of it still lies unexcavated beneath the fields, and as such it constitutes the greatest archaeological reserve of its kind. The patriarchal basilica, an outstanding building with an exceptional mosaic pavement, played a key role in the evangelization of a large region of central Europe.
