  • Amazingly well preserved Roman mosaics, unlike anything I've seen elsewhere before. Very well presented in a covered building, with good information available on the boards.

There's also wheelchair access to most of the site, but perhaps not quite everywhere.

  • Assolutamente incredibile! Do not miss this!!
  • Cool place to visit. Nice mosaic.
  • Wow, great place to check out. Bit out of the way but worth every minute. Awesome.
