I enjoyed this small, perfectly formed museum. It truly brought this Roman settlement alive. The museum outlined the use of the Augusteum in a thoughtful, visual way and it was easy to imagine the rituals that were held there.

How does the city expect to increase the number of tourists to visit when 2 of the main attractions are CLOSED. Time to get better prepared to welcome tourists with $ !!!

This was the headquarters of the priests. It is situated within the main commercial areas for those times. It has an entrance courtyard which goes to the temple. It is very richly decorated with marble. Parts of the floors are preserved. There are cabinets showing different pieces of pottery etc. and also coins.

What a gem! This Roman theater was first discovered about 25 years ago when construction workers were clearing land to build apartments. The little museum is new and well-organized. Exploring the theater itself can involve steep stairs with no hand rails. Sturdy shoes are recommended as is a water bottle in the summer months. Start to finish can take two... More

A great day out, takes about 3 hrs in total to view the four sites on a saver ticket currently 38 euros for a family of four. Just amazing to see.

Well worth exploring. Lots of steep walking. Take water and wear tennis shoes. They do not allow camera bags inside and you must check them at the entrance.

This is a very interesting museum, but check the opening times before you plan your day. You may be there when the Roman Centurion is on duty. Don't forget to say 'AVE' (Hi).
