  • Having learned of the inauguration of the "new" antiquarium, went to visit: free ticket, several rooms with numerous archaeological finds ranging from Neolithic times until the battle of Cannae, filmed in 3D very suggestive of 15/20 min reconstructs the entire Second Punic War and in particular the battle of Cannae, visit the remains of the city of reeds from which one can see a breathtaking view! You know better than that ...

  • Took a long time driving round to find this site to find that they are doing it up so it is not open at the moment,even though the sign outside clearly states that it is open. I am sure it would have ...  more »
  • Stayed here on 1 ^ may, on the occasion of the much touted reopening to the public. Certainly compared to many other tourists who complain about in their reviews that he found the archaeological site closed and inaccessible, we were most fortunate being able to access them also for free. This however was a very small consolation. We must acknowledge and agree with the other reviewers on TripAdvisor that the whole archaeological area is, unfortunately, neglected, who knows how long, local and foreign institutions. Bad access roads; directions sketchy; absence of tour guides during the afternoon hours; route entrusted vigilantes whose only concern was to do it quickly without giving even the time to read the few cartels exist and without having any specific competence in this area; inaccessible museum like the sepulchral area (path B); No artwork and/or information. A shame because the story (in these places was held a famous battle between the Romans and Carthaginians armies--led by Hannibal-during the Second Punic War) and the archaeological importance of the site deserve a much greater care and attention.

  • Beautiful and impressive. Site full of history. Interesting the antiquarium with beautiful artefacts (pottery daune, Roman and Byzantine). Staff helpful and polite.

  • Remembered for the battle of Rome against Hannibal but also famous for the battle of the Byzantine Catepan Basil Boioannes controlled between 1080 and the Lombards under Melus of Bari (Bari Lombard in exile in Monte Sant'Angelo, where he met a Group of Norman mercenaries to the shrine of the Archangel and convinced them to invade the South Italy to expel the Byzantines). The Byzantines won this battle but this event is cited as one of the probable reasons for the descent in Italy of the Norman people who subsequently he founded the Kingdom of Sicily! A magical place, steeped in history, to visit absolutely!

  • I arrived a little after 14, after a long journey, and the caretaker (who was coming out at that time) he informed me that the structure was only open in the morning for staff shortages. Shame on the website of the Ministry of culture and the Superintendence, nor timetables on site, there is no trace of this reduction.
