The little museum is very informative and worth seeing. The remains have been seriously messed around but still worth looking at. The site is near the bus stop, so not out of your way

Enjoyed this very much as a change of period and atmosphere from other local sights. Good mosaics sculptures and small items from daily life. Big museums can be overwhelming. This was just right.
