  • This a huge area to cover. Take at least half a day at a quick pace. Well looked after. Facinating to see how far the coast has retreated. A must see when in Rome. Well priced for what it is.
  • Great place to visit and use your imagination. Getting out of Rome and into the countryside is an added plus. Recommend getting Rick Steve's podcast to guide you.
  • Hidden gem nearby Rome. Nice to get away from the busy city. Can be easily accessed by train.
  • So great to see how much was preserved and all the culture that remains. Especially the mosaics were cool to see.
  • This place is absolutely amazing! The ruins are extensive and there are many statues, mosaics, and artifacts still intact.
