  • Magnificent Roman cistern scary is a understatement! Its worth the visit you must call beforehand she does not speak English ask an Italian friend or hotel staff to help.
  • The opening hours vary at the grace of some lady you have to call when you get there. Even if all the information said 18h online, it was suddenly closed at 16h when we got there at 1623 (last entry at 16h, exit by 17h). There were even other people there who also thought it closed at 18h, but they still wouldn't let us in until 17h even if we walked for an hour to get there. Pro tip: don't walk for an hour in the sun to see a cool archaeological site when it is run by people who can't put useful info about opening hours online. Really bad experience. Not "coming back tomorrow" as we were told on the phone.
  • Amazing Roman cistern. A brilliant site at which to witness the engineering genius of the Romans.
  • This place is really incredible! Just think about how old it is and how is preserved in 2000 years. It's also unique how to enter there, I remember to ring at the door of a kind old woman who has the key for the gate, actually this was few years ago, hope it's changed in better, but it's a kind of an experience. Even if it's far from the usual travel place it's acrwal gem, worth the visit!
  • An amazing part of Roman history. It is massive and leaves a lasting impression.
