  • Fall within the Roman cisterns is fun: come equipped with helmet, torch, and go, get down to 7/8 metres through the iron stairs. And here begins the beautiful, 10 rooms to visit one after the other. They might seem, and in part they are, all the same, but through the guidance we could appreciate everything, absolutely everything, from the choice of the site where the construction of the tank, building techniques, up to notes on Roman legislation on concessions for the use of public water and urban change cistern with changes of the city. A heartfelt thanks to those who so passionately manages to talk about monuments and make them "culturally accessible" at all.

  • To see. You dive into the atmosphere of the great public works of Roman times thanks to the clear exposition and engaging local guides, truly worthy of review. Ready to answer any curiosity, exellent. A must for anyone visiting Amelia.

  • Very interesting visiting these tanks built by the Romans in the 2nd century AD and which were used up to 50 years of last century. It is reached by descending a staircase not very easy and once you get off you can admire an extraordinary spectacle of hydraulic engineering. Basically you can visit about 20 meters long, environments 10 5 meters wide and 5 meters high. Applaud the girl who drove us very prepared (drove us in visit to Palazzo Petrignani and Teatro Sociale [gem]). Price reduced 3 euro-2 euro.
