  • Great place to spend a day for a pic nic, or to go for an evening concert at the Roman amphitheatre!
  • Love the experiente of being there! The well preserved ruins and the mosaiques...
  • I have honestly been slightly disappointed. The historical places are partially re painted and maintained in a way that not everything looks authentic anymore.
  • Somewhat small - as you would expect from a Roman provincial town - but still nice to see a lot of attention and care given to what otherwise would've been a forgettable museum. Naturally the silver treasure and the amphitheater are the main attractions, however those are complemented by activities for children and adults (such as Roman cooking classes), and the whole area is very nice for picnics in summer.
  • Great place but come prepared otherwise you might just see a bunch of Ruins, especially if you do not plan to visit the small museum.
