Velia

This large and beautiful hilly area was the birthplace of philosopher Parmenides and, to this day, it holds much historical interest. The acropolis with its medieval tower are both worth visiting, as is Porta Rosa, the arch sustaining the ancient viaduct: the name comes from the colors of the sunset reflecting on the marble. The views from the top are stunning, so take your time and enjoy them.
