This Roman site exists just below the modern street level in Brindisi and presents a small area of a Roman archaeological site viewed from a suspended metal walkway with short multi-lingual descriptions. What I found particularly of interest was the fact that the site is protected by a modern theater/concert hall above it.

Start at the Imformation Centre where they will give you a map marked with a walk around the Archeological area. It would be ease to miss the well kept, interesting ruins under the modern theatre. Entry is free and it is an easy walk right around on a broadwalk looking down on the ruins. A highlight of our visit to Brindisi

They found this site and built a theatre on it! However, despite comments to the contrary, it works because the ancient site is preserved and the town has a theatre. The theatre offers a good observation point from above but it took some courage to walk over the glass floor to read the literature.
Downstairs you can walk around the site and there are guide sheets in English. Free to enter but it is not obvious that you access via the theatre entrance. We were made most welcome by the staff inside. Not remarkable but well worth a look.

Nice exhibit of early Roman city underneath a modern building in the historic section of Brindisi. It's free to get in and offers displays in English describing different sections. Absolutely a must-see in Brindisi.

It would be easy to miss this site, the metal grilled doors and small plaque are dwarfed by the impressive 'Nuovo Teatro Giuseppe Verdi' above it. But it is worth the 20 minutes or so out of the sun to discover a well kept archeological site. While there is nothing 'remarkable' to see, it is, for those of us who enjoy such places, nice to note that modern developments CAN accommodate the relics of the ancient world. And you can get a glimpse of how a Roman street worked.

This is an ancient Roman site and it is large and has been retained but sadly under a modern building which is practical use of the area as well as protecting the site. Does spoilt it a little.

Again, nothing spectacular, just some old walls, but with the modern theatre nearby, you can feel what this place was once. Worst of seeing once, do not expect nothing spectacular, enjoy the meeting of the present and the past.

Well, when you walk inside, you will be above and looking down on the excavations. This is your chance to see the old Brindisi. There is a part of the excavations that shows an old stone road albeit not too much of it. The excavations look very much like the other excavations you have seen in other places--stone walls enclosing rooms. I wouldn't say that the exhibit is breathtaking, but it reminds you that there is a buried ancient city underneath the existing one. Remember that Brindisi served as one of the most important Roman ports, and the beginning of the Appian Way. Admission is free. It closes for the afternoon siesta if not the rest of the day.

This place is free so a 5 stars anyway. I'm an archaeologist anyway so I loved the place. You can just walk in off the street and it's quite moving. It was really very quiet when I went round and I feel like it's overlooked. You are able to walk around a section of an ancient Roman Street. There is some mosaic still visible and you can see some of the colour on the walls of the houses still. It's worth a bit of time :)

Confused by the jumble of ruins that pass as an archaeological site? In that case, visit this museum lying just inches (ok, a bit deeper) below the modern streets of Brindisi. Although somewhat dark, there is a nice metal walk way around the perimeter of the site and at each point of interest along the walk there are stands with extensive book-like explanations (illustrated) in both Italian and English. These explanations take the mystery out of what you are looking at and bring the site to life.
