This is a well- maintained museum, with a good collection of very old coins. But the biggest draw here is the basement, where they show a partially- excavated Roman amphitheater. Apparently there are plans to dig more in the plaza facing the museum, so this...More

This is an impressive modern building that is built on an old Roman amphitheater. There are many artifacts, and informative drawings of what life was like back then.More
