It was a lovely day out walking around these ancient ruins. Definitely worth a visit even if you don't particularly like monuments but enjoy a nice long stroll.

We went here as a trip following in the footsteps of Paul the apostle, he was here spreading the gospel. Amazing living history to walk the same streets. Plus the fresh pomegranate juice in the vendor area is awesome!

I recommend you not to go there directly and take a guide who tries to be guide of the random people. I can recommend you to book a guided tour from jollytur or even on tripadvisor !
