Enjoyed a peaceful few hours at this excellent Roman site. The lack of visitors, even on a Sunday, made our slow meandering around the ruins all the more pleasurable. Don't expect a huge site, but the mix of amphitheatre, theatre, forum and basilica gives a great idea of the important elements of a Roman town.

Carsulae is more than an archeological site. The roman ruins are beautifull and interesting. But there is something more to it. The setting and the landscape is one of those unique places where one feels connected to the past. The park is substantial, so you will have the chance to stroll around the ruins by yourselves and experience the history... More

When we arrived to the car park, a large one but was deserted and looked so... abandoned... we had our doubts if really there was an archaeological park or if the site was closed but after a long walk we found the visitor centre and phew... This archaeological site cannot be compared to Pompeii or Ephesus; this is much smaller... More

So many Roman sites are shared by the hustle and bustle of noisy tourists. This site is large, quiet and intimate. Sit amongst the ruins or theatre, amphitheatre, temples, forum, basilica...and more. Stroll along the stone pavement of the Via Flaminia and imagine what Augustan period life was like.

Quite a few ruins including baths, bascilica, forum, amphitheatre and others and good value for money at €5. Included in the price is a paper guide (available in a number of languages). Really interesting to be able to see things so close up without having to fight your way through hordes of other visitors. There is also a little museum... More

Roman ruins amidst green meadows, shady trees and surrounded by the soft green hills of Umbria. It's an inexpensive and peaceful walk and there are signs with information about the ruins. If you want a more detailed tour you can ask for a guide at the ticket box/museum. The ruins are well kept and an interesting and unexpected interlude from... More

The BEST thing in Itlay! My wife and I visited the site 2 years ago base on a single google review. We visited the site on a misty morning and when we got there we thought that it was closed because there were no cars in the parking lot. It was open and it was magical (as breath0-taking as Maachu... More

If you like ruins, don't miss Carsulae. We visited 17 years ago and were awed. This time was even better, because the government has added an interpretive center (with a little cafe) and signage. It is wonderful to be able to walk among these ancient stones and foundations -- without the kinds of crowds you find in Pompeii and even... More

We heard about Carsulae from some friends who had visited the site a few days earlier. Had they not told us about it we would have never heard about it and that would have been a terrible pity. I would say this was one of the most interesting sites we visited on our recent trip to Southern Umbria. It is... More

Our guide book said it should be impresive. But that is maybe too much. It is an interesting site though. You can see what used to be a Basilica, a temple, a forum and houses from the 9th centuary. There is also a tiny museum with some findings. Well equiped bar for snacks and drinks. The staff was friendly. The... More
