Carsulae is a Roman settlement along the Via Flaminia that was effectively abandoned when the major route shifted east. Because of that, there has been no development over it and little removal of materials over the years since the 4th century AD. The site is...More

Stunning place to visit and reasonably priced at €5 each, easy to find just followed the signs when we got closer to the destination rather than the sat nav. A must see if you're in Umbria!!!
