Great site, fairly easy to navigate but very hot in August obviously. Nice little museum with a few English explanations. There is a small bar for drinks and ice-cream afterwards.

Set among old olive trees with broad trunks, one can see remains of structures dating back to Greek times. There is a small but nice museum on the premises. Right inside the entrance stands the remains of a Norman era cathedral. Definitely worth a visit!

Really surprising visit, brilliant value and fascinating. Some incredible treasures have been recovered in fantastic condition. We were the only ones there pretty much, we had total freedom to wander around. Great day.

Very interesting ruins and museum, especially the ruins of a large church. Unfortunately, the road has been built before the excavations started and it "cuts" the archeological site in half, including the Roman Forum.
