Amazingly large area to have a look at which means that visitors do not feel crowded together. So many remains, quite uunusual.

Wonderful place to visit and great restoration work done. Greeks, Romans and Visigoths all had an influence here. Well worth the entry fee. Surprised how big the place was as well as what had still to be excavated.

I cant believe we hadn't learnt about this place at school. Enjoyed far more than Pompeii!. Beautiful scenery and stunning mosaics that you can see up close. Ancient greek and roman artefacts set out with a fascinating audio tour that takes approx 2 hrs. However you can pause at any time and enjoy the beautiful gardens and walkways. Could have spent days here.

At €5.50 per adult this place was really good value. Very interesting and scenic, plus an audio guide included for the price which had some great information about the site and the way life used to be here. Well worth a visit
