Alba Fucens is the largest Roman site (so far excavated) in the Abruzzo and it is beautifully located. It was NOT the easiest to find but once we were there we enjoyed our visit tremendously. It is free to visit which is always nice, and apart from one guided tour there were very few other visitors. Some of the reconstruction was a bit clumsy, with large 'blobs' of concrete holding some things together, and mosaic floors were not sadly not revealed, which seemed a shame as it would be quite easy to excavate and display - but I guess money has run out. A 5 minute walk away is a very impressive amphitheatre. There was space to park and we had a beer in a garden area overlooking the site afterwards. A good couple of hours - but take hat and sunscreen as there was little or no shade to be found.
