A lot of artifacts are in the small museum, but the main attraction is teh amphiteatrum which looks like as "new" , not in ruins. Concerts are held also there.

Great place to see the ruins, the museum and the Tuscan hills on the other side. Quiet and very pleasant, very well documented and visitor-friendly. The place is magical.

If you are fully into the history and archeology then go ahead, pay the entrance fee and spend 1-2 hours wandering the site. If not, or you don’t have the time, and you are just curious what it’s about, then I recommend: reading the material...More
