The state of preservation is incredible for structures over 1700 years old, though best to wear good walking shoes as some surfaces can be tricky..

Well done tour with much to see and learn. It was interesting to hear the history and also to try to take you back to such a different place and time.

This basement is worth seeing. It allows you to appreciate the size of the old palace and the people who constructed this basement in order to support such a structure.

Well worth a visit although we would have benefited from a guide as we found places we wanted to see hard to find. It is a rabbit warren of little streets...Most of which were not marked on the map we got from the tourist information centre. Perhaps they should think about more signage, or even marking a route on the... More

Such an interesting spot to relax and visit. Great promenade with lots of cafes to stop for coffee and just people watch. Good selection of shops and gifts all at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

Just stumbled across this whilst wandering around but it was an amazing find. Got an app with a tour of the palace to find out all about it which was worthwhile until it crashed on us. Some very good photos from it, and where else can you find market stalls in the dungeons?

The palace, named after the Roman Emperor who had it built for his retirement, is more than a palace, it's a complex of buildings for the Emperor's personal use and to accommodate his soldiers.
