Fun way to see "under" the walls we'd been walking around, and see some ruins. Affordable for the whole family to visit. Great addition to spending time in neighborhood.

This was very interesting and the tickets are very inexpensive. You walk through an excavated Roman settlement that is all underground. Very well done done installation. Educational.

Not worth the entrance fee of 7 euros.. Just a couple of Roman ruins and some exhibits which unfortunately is not in English. Spent about an hour in there. Mediocre at best.
