Mostly ruins and trees. Also we saw LOTS of storks - and cats. Nothing that really has to be seen but nice to spend an hour or two.

This is a great place to stroll through in some shade. There are open areas around the ruins, but you will still have plenty of shade. There are some stairs and uneven surfaces, but nothing too extreme. I saw a man with a cane navigating...More

From the view outside of the walls, the storms and the entrance to the shaded paths, the gardens, the tombs and the Roman ruins this is a superb place to visit. There are not many visitors and there is plenty of time and space to...More

Yes there is a parking area in front of the entrance. It is mainly used by tourist coaches but they don't fill the area.
