If you like bimbling around ruins this is perfect. We had the place to ourselves at one point and it was great for the children to scramble around the walls. The tomb that my son thought looked like a Trivial Pursuit wedge holder was very intriguing. The ruins might be added to soon as we saw some men doing an... More

I can't improve on the review posted by Marsique01! We last visited 20 years ago. It is so much better now. I love the fact it's a bit ramshackle. The atmosphere is quite special. The church is stunning - that was new to us. The museum is nicely presented. We enjoyed delicious coffee in the sunshine. The staff in the... More

Having been led by an out of date guide book to expect a free visit, we were surprised to be asked to pay €5. It's difficult to see where the money is being spent! The labels around the site have all worn away and the ground is rough and poorly maintained. It took a while to orientate ourselves on the... More

This ancient Roman town is located along the cobbled Roman road known in its day as the Via Flaminia. You can walk along the road yourself in the footsteps of the Caesars - it's still there. This is not a sterile tourist site like many others, it is overgrown in places and sheep frequently pass through it - which makes... More

You will be open mouth when walking along the stones of the via Flaminia, passing by the Basilique or the Forum. You are looking at a Roman town built about 2000 years ago in the middle of Umbria, very close to San Gemini and its waters. You can discover the site walking around freely and using the helpful map you... More

I was particularly keen to visit Carsulea having heard that they are currently excavating the bath complex. While the site is an important one, and the general outline is visible, the site was so overgrown that is was difficult to really see the walls or path. The info signs are completely faded so most of the information is no longer... More

Near San Gemini, there is another little village: Cesi. Attached at the side of the mountain Eolo on a fantastic solar position. the village can only be visited on foot, up and down its small stairs that cross the houses and courtyards. From the village runs a path that climbs to the top of the mountain Monte Torre Maggiore (1121... More

We couldn't have found carsulae without gps, but we're so glad we made the effort! It was a beautiful day and we were among the only people wandering among the ruins and taking in the scenery. There was enough to keep us interested for several hours and we had a nice walk, took some great pictures, and ate our sandwiches... More

Carsulae is on of the two maggior Roman Excavation sites in Umbria. (The other one is Ocriculum). A long time ago, whenever I was near, I went there, right into the middle of the ruins, parked the car in front of the antique temple - and enjoyed the beautiful site, the nature, the view into the beautiful landscape - and...
