It's a pity to see how a Unesco site is neglected to this extent. The signs that should indicate what ruins you are looking at are so faded it's impossible to make any sense of what you're seeing. The museum was closed for renovations, so...More

Only for the most hard core history buffs. Not much here...spread out amongst a few sites. At least when you go to the baths you can walk amongst what little is left.
