  • "Carnuntum" was an important trading center on the intersection between the Amber Road and the Danube East of Vienna, located on the right bank of the Danube. Here, the Romans established a fortified camp with accompanying civilian town with high home decor; Carnuntum experienced its heyday in the 2nd to 4th century and had a population of about 50,000. The amphitheatre, the Heath gate (a four-door former ARCH), residential - business and craft houses were partially excavated and reconstructed with some remarkable mosaics. The amphitheatre provided space for 13,000 spectators. Several Roman emperors visited Carnuntum, Marcus Aurelius died here. An exhibition leads through the 2,000-year history of the site, there are several events during the summer months. Carnuntum is a magnet of visit to schools, students, tourists.

  • I've seen a lot, but only here I could finally and not in photograph see reconstructed of Roman houses. Carnuntum was part of the Roman Limes of pannonia on the Danube purpose and curiosity of our trip. La casa di Lucio is a very nice and accurate reconstruction of a Roman nobleman's House. Finally in 60 years I was able to see a reconstruction of a Roman House. I recommend a visit.
