Very interesting Roman villa, well laid out under cover with an excellent cafe and first class food. Plenty of parking and easily accessible from public transport (an uphill walk from the bus stop).

Purpose built building covering remains of roman villa with mosaic floors. This would be a great wet day activity but it is air conditioned for hot days too. Great displays and child friendly. Shop and nice café.
