“Not quite ready to visit yet.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We found about the site by internet and decided to visit. However, it is not open to public yet and it was not easy to find the location (do not trust your navigation devices). Since there was only us trying to see inside the guard took us inside and showed us around. The excavation has begun in 1989 and still a lot has to be done before it can be opened to public. The settlement dates back to 3000BC and they have found several layers each belonging to a different period in history. The latest is the one from Roman Empire time. The theater, baths (underground heating), parliament building, shops and houses with beautiful mosaics were excellent. They expect to find more as excavations continue.
