  • These ruins are only accessible of you have paid for entry into the History Museum. They were discovered when they were in the process of building a mall in the 80s.  more »
  • Trying to Trip the attractions of Marseille we discovered the existence of the Jardins des Vestiges, although it seemed strange to find green in that area full of palaces; instead alongside the modern Centre Bourse is a fairly wide, fenced and well kept green area where you can see the archaeological traces of the ancient port, the period before Christ, during the Greek domination.

  • Remainings of the ancient Greek main entrance gate and city walls and cemetery, Roman road, warehouse and small port. Amazing for someone who likes that period and archeology, not for simple turist sightseeing. The entrance is only possible from the museum, but ticket is not expensive, and museum holds everyday items and remainings of ships found on that location, so it's worth it.
  • Rather Boring, just some rocks laying around and small walls standing up. There are much more interesting archeological sites
  • Overrated. Go to Sofia to see the best preserved Roman remains.
