  • The site is easily accessible as well indicated by road signs. The exhibits of Veleia are well preserved and are a good historical record of what's left of Centre founded by the ligurians in 158 b.c. within the site you will find the information Office (which also doubles as a ticket office) and the antiquarium which houses some of the exhibits, original and in copy (as most are found in the Museum of Parma) , which were found during excavations. The tanker is currently not open to the public. However it can be seen from the main road that passes over the Church. The site visit takes about an hour.

  • Archaeological area not wide but very interesting with the significant remains of the "civitas", founded by the Romans in 158 BC after permanently subdued the local Ligurian peoples. Veleja was for a long time an important seat of a very large territory, reaching the maximum development at the Augustan age and then decline gradually up to depopulate after the collapse of the Western Roman Empire and finally disappear buried by landslides and floods. Next to the ruins is the sixteenth-century Church of Sant'Antonino, built when the ancient Veleja lay hidden underground.

  • Roman remains little known perhaps, but definitely interesting and charming, which deserves to be visited when you find yourself spending the Northern Apennines, Italy, near Lugagnano Val d'arda, not far from Castell'Arquato. Very nice and also very well preserved the hole. There is also a small museum in which are preserved various finds from the Roman period, although most of them are located at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale of Parma. Along the way, both of the Museum that the excavations, there are numerous information panels, which allow you to frame your site in the context of the period and acquire valuable information on the conduct of daily life of the ancient inhabitants of this Roman town. The entrance ticket costs only 2 euros per person. The visit to this archaeological gem is highly recommended.
