A fairly large and well preserved ruin of a roman town. Comparable to Pompeii but not as well preserved as that. It is free though! There are incredible views over the plains below and the surrounding hills. You really get a sense of how strategic...More

This site has the potential to be a first rate attraction but sadly it looks somewhat neglected. I understand that in Italy one is practically tripping over these historical sites, but in this fantastic elevated site it could be so much more. Perhaps money is...More

If you're around the area, I think it's worth a visit. The town of Norma is high up the mountains and has an old medieval district with tight alleys and cobblestone streets. The surrounding area is also nice since you are literally high up on...More

An easy stroll to this archaeological site is well worth it. Perched above the plain the views are spectacular and the exposed foundations of the town and it's roads are easy to read. Visit the museum in the medieval town first for a run down...More

A bit off the beaten track but well worth it. Some very well preserved roman roads, some remains of roman buildings and a great view of the Agro pontina. Got a bonus as there were some parà sailers doing their descents. Free but not well...More

We visited late on a clearing rainy day. However, we were impressed with the ruins and the restoration undertaken. Being on the edge of the mountain the views are spectacular when we saw them next day. These ruins are from the Republic times and date...More

We had read that Norma had Roman ruins, but we were unexpectedly impressed by the extent of the ruins. Free entry and free access to the whole site. Lovely views from the site. We were disappointed that the information centre was closed, and was not...More

It was very interesting. Views were beautiful. There are not a lot of placards so if you don't have a guide it may be hard to understand.

Nice for a walk through. It's interesting to see how the city of Norba was 2000 years ago. Very nice roman streets and parts of buildings.

Don't get confused by its almost unknown location, the city of Norba was very big and only a few squares have been discovered so far, the entrance is free and you can walk all over the place while you enjoy the fantastic views. Be sure...More
