Around 20 minutes' drive from our hotel (Castello di Sismano, near Montecastrilli) this well-organised and presented site is well worth a visit - it has an impressive arch, forum, theatres, a long stretch of preserved road (the Via Flaminia) and is served by a small museum with lots of helpful literature. If you're not particularly mobile it's a half-kilometre walk... More

This site is off a small quiet rural road. The walk to the site gives sublime views of the countryside. The information centr is excellent and has a small coffee shop. It's easy to get about the site and imagine the place bustling with life. Mercifully you can enjoy the experience with our hoards of tourists.

If you are in the area this is definitely worth a visit! Carsulae goes back to 220 B.C. The Ancient Via Flaminia runs right through this original Roman town.. Check out the waterfall in this area as well, it's amazing.

Carsulae is great. The ruins of theater, amphitheater, forum, gate, Via Flaminia etc. are evocative reminders of Roman life. There is a small exhibition of archeological finds in the visitor center. The signs throughout the site are mostly illegible, so take a simple printed map from the visitor center for free; they're available in various languages. It was very difficult... More

When you think of archaeology and Italy, one of the first things to come to mind is Pompeii. Carsulae is smaller than Pompeii, and nowhere nearly as documented as Pompeii. But Carsulae has something unique. Where Pompeii can be overwhelming, Carsulae is small enough that you can imagine what this place was once like. The Via Flaminia runs right through... More

The piece of ancient roman city are impressive, especially the two different arches and the 3 tombs differently shaped. The Via Flaminia, so clearly traced with its big stones paving it all along, really push you to imagine the roman chars passing by, and it's one of the places where you can find a bit of shade from the summer...

Beautiful setting in the countryside surrounded by trees. Generally quiet so you may have the site to yourselves. The remains of an amphitheater, baths, basilica and forum can be seen although not as well preserved as other sites. The visitor centre also good.

A bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit. This former provincial capital of Ancient Rome has ruins better preserved than many in the Forum.

We got a guided tour of this site. Was very informative, guide took a lot of time to explain everything answer questions. Great atmosphere as there was hardly anyone else there that day - all to ourselves.
