  • Vesuna is worth visiting even if you are not interested in history. There is so much to see from the ruins, recovered structures and excellent interpretation models to funeraria, glass, metal, jewelle...  more »
  • You can see other places - beeindruckendere Rome, Cologne, Trier, etc. – exhibits this time. But design and architecture here are overwhelming. Worth a trip!
