Amazing amount of this site remains on show and acres lay under the surface and probably will never be investigated. I saw people wandering around looking bored stiff, let's face it, this all seems like it cannot be really 2000 years old...but it is. So...More

There is certainly plenty to see here. When you see a plan of the original town it's amazing how big it was. A very good audio guide relates the history of the place. You can just imagine been back in Roman times

We spent half day here looking from the road we very nearly never went in .But it would have been a big mistake. Fantastic facts about the Roman city .Good price as well I never thought a bunch of rocks would be so interesting.

Easy to find, good parking, cheerful and helpful staff and excellent audio guide. Well worth two or three hours and, in our case, a 35 mile drive each way. We will go there again when we are next in the area.
