Strategically, Fiume was the most important city on the Adriatic. The old Roman road and the railroad from the Danube reached the coast at Fiume. Since ancient times, Fiume had been largely populated by Italians, as was most of the Adriatic coast. There was bitter hatred between the native inhabitants of the interior and the Italians. At this time, Charles Summerall was invited by General Pershing to accompany his party on a tour of Italy. They had visited England while Charles was at Fiume. While in Rome, they were taken to many historic spots and monuments. He rode much with Mr. Jay, at the embassy in Rome. He told him that the navy in the Adriatic felt slighted by receiving no attention or courtesies from the embassy. He said that he would correct the situation. Admiral Andrews later told Charles that the relations improved.
