What an amazing place. No need to buy a ticket to go inside. You can view it from the top inside the walled city. It’s quite a view.

Late November there is not a lot of tourists or information on what you are seeing, most of the sites are closed so you are looking over fences.

Site of roman theatre is relatively complete including some standing pillars. There is a book available on the excavations on the site. Good views from above.
