My boyfriend loved this because he's a Roman history buff; I enjoyed it as well but definitely wasn't as excited about it as he was. Cool to take a look at, doesn't take long and is interesting. Free entrance so if you have the time...More

Stopped into the Derlon Hotel for a cocktail and was amazed to see the hotel sits on Roman ruins. It is really cool to check out and the bar was lovely.

Although we didn't have breakfast in the cellar nor stayed in the hotel, the friendly staff allowed us a quick peek in their cellar. Which is absolutely worth a visit!
