The Vrsar area was inhabited in prehistoric times. Then the Histri and the Liburni are coming here. By the end of the 1st century B.C. The Romans completely conquered the Histre and the Liburne. Roman rule did not erode the settlement that existed here before the arrival of the Romans. But, shortly after the Roman conquest, there was no new, coastal settlement below the hill. It had private and public buildings and villae rusticae. Particularly bloom in late Ancient times. It was not usually a village (vicus), but a real market for cattle and livestock products. The development of the trade was favorable by the relative vicinity of Ravenna and the Via Flavia Roman road.
