    For 7 euro I bought the combined ticket which allows access to the 4 CaesarAugusta museums (theatre, baths & forum). I wouldn't bother buying a ticket just to see this site. Staff were friendly & gave...  more »

  • The audio visual did make the difference in this otherwise limited museum. Sadly it was in Spanish only and it would be so easy to add subtitles to the adult part of the presentation.
  • Scant, confusing remains of the Roman port.
  • Wow
  • Multimedia presentation that explains very well and attractively what it was and was the river port Roman for Cesaraugusta, but if you don't have much time, there are better things to visit in the city.

Where to stay in Zaragoza

When visiting this historical city, most visitors opt to stay in the old quarter, or Casco Viejo, for its convenient proximity to many of the city's iconic landmarks and compact network of local eateries, shops, and traditional architecture. The old quarter is located along the Ebre River meaning that you are only a scenic waterfront stroll away from the rest of the city's buzzing neighborhoods. Several newer hotels are located in the commercial zone centered around Gran Via, one of the city's main arteries, where plenty of shops and well-known restaurants line the buzzing streets. Alternatively, head to the University district for a mix of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and a vibrant nightlife, where accommodation tends to be a bit cheaper.
