In this area, patients often choose to visit the Roman-era Hippodrome, which was once the site of chariot races and also houses Egyptian obelisks.

Closer to the Center, there is also the opportunity to visit the Viaport Marina, a seaside port that offers visitors shopping, boating, spas, and restaurants.
