  • Very nice environment and very well presented also for kids. We were there in the morning but already some kids were involved in Roman games. The site is extremely well kept and gives a good idea...

  • The location is great, there is a lot to discover and do. You can even bake bread and make some perfume, like in the good old days. It is a good walk if you want to see everything, very nicely restored and looked after. Nice and friendly service 👍
  • Large Roman settlement with advanced architecture. See the largest hoard of silver from antiquity ever found. Great for school trips. Amazing history.
