The walk around the theater and baths was pleasant and quite interesting. The Civic Museum was interesting as well, although somewhat small with limited opportunities to ask questions. Overll, well worth the experience.

First of all, no, this is not Rome or Pompeii. As far as I know, there is only one Pompeii, so nothing would ever compare to that. And comparing the modest ruins in a small city on a hillside to the capital city of Italy is just silly. Rome is, after all, the Eternal City and birthplace of the Roman... More

Worth a trip - take bus route 5 from place St Marco to end of line - visit the museum - you must find the ticket office, which is not at the entrance. Wonderful views. Then take a walk into Fiesole and have a panoramic view of Florence which is breath taking (and not only because of the walk!).

Great small Roman site, consisting of a theatre, temple and small museum. Great view over the nearby hills from the site. The amphitheater is well preserved, the temple less so. There's a small museum here as well - nothing special, but compliments the site nicely. Note that it closes at 2pm, at least in the winter. Local buses drop you... More

If you are in the area you must do a walk through the museum and the ruins. Wasn't aware there was a Roman Ruins in the area that was so impressive

Although there is a nicely preserved amphitheatre here (with a great view over the valley), that is pretty much all there is here. From the other buildings, only the rock base still stands. The museum offers some pretty nicely preserved artifacts and information. If you're here, take half an hour to check this out. But don't go out of your... More

Great small roman site - worth a visit. The museum is like a tardis with some interesting artefacts. Can stop off if you are visiting on the city bus tour or local buses seem regular. Can be breezy as in hills so better to wrap up. This is no comparison to other major Roman sites but worth a visit to... More

We bought the multi-museum option for admission and enjoyed our time at the Roman Theater as well as the Civic Museum. Lots of sculpture in the museum, metal artifacts, etc., and the views from the rear of the theater were stunning. Amazing foundations were discovered in this excavation.

When the hordes of tourists get to you, get on bus #7 at San Marco Piazza (buy a ticket at the nearby newstand or Tabacchi) and validate it on the machine after you enter the bus. It's about a 20 min ride up a splendid hill where spires of cedars punctuate the sky. When you get off the bus, cross... More
