The ruins of the city is giving a good opinion on the original structure. A must-visit place for ones who are interested in history and excavations.
We didn't expect this site to be as big as it is. It's a wonderful place to visit - but would take the best part of a day to get around (so take lots of water with you). The ruins are all available to walk around, over and up - which is a really nice surprise. The bits that we... More

Only reservation is that some of the more fragile remains - e.g. mosaics - are not protected from the elements. A wild situation, close to the sea giving an interesting perspective on how the settlement... More
