  • The mosaics are beautiful but the fact there are 7 member of staff there and not one of them offered to give us a tour or explain anything in detail was disappointing.

The toilets were indicate by a sign which was misleading as it led to more remains, not only the toilets.
  • What a surprise....charming stop on our cycle route
  • Impressive Roman mosaics. Free entry!

  • Well preserved roman mosaics. Entrance is free. If you are in the area, it's worth a visit.
