This is a large site with extensive remains of a Roman town. Not a patch on Pompeii of course but very interesting. Can easily understand why the Romans built here as the views across the med are stunning.

Actually, its a bloody revelation... to wonder around the ruins is very much like the old city in Rome. Many researchers and TV faces have done the same. Worth a look and to see what you make of it.
