When the excavation are complete this will be well worth a visit. You can get to view the site if you go round the back and down past some appartments, but it is not signposted

This site is just as it was found, only just rescued by local foresight from being built over. To archaeologists, it appears to be the Hypocaust of a small villa, rather than fish tanks, as when built, the sea level and actual shore would have...More
