Santa Maria Capua Vetere

Description

The town occupies the same area as the ancient city of Capua, founded by the Etruscans on the site of an existing indigenous village in 589 BC and depopulated in 840 when the Saracens forced the inhabitants to move to nearby Casilinum, changing its name to that of their own city.
The old town centre has a medieval character that is expressed in both its civil and religious architecture. The sights worth seeing include the archeological area with finds from the 5th through 9th centuries, the Arch of Hadrian, the Amphitheatre, the Mithraeum, the Cryptoporticus, the house of Cofuleio Sabbio, the Castle of the Roman Aqueduct, the Imperial Villa and the Roman Villa.
Finally, we recommend a visit to the Museo Archeologico dell'Antica Capua, with 10 halls that hold finds from the 10th century BC to the 1st century AD, and the Museo delle Carrozze (Carriage Museum).
