The city has gone through major changes over their more than 2.000 years of history, but here you can really go back all those years.

I enjoyed this small, perfectly formed museum. It truly brought this Roman settlement alive. The museum outlined the use of the Augusteum in a thoughtful, visual way and it was easy to imagine the rituals that were held there.

This was the headquarters of the priests. It is situated within the main commercial areas for those times. It has an entrance courtyard which goes to the temple. It is very richly decorated with marble. Parts of the floors are preserved. There are cabinets showing different pieces of pottery etc. and also coins.

What a gem! This Roman theater was first discovered about 25 years ago when construction workers were clearing land to build apartments. The little museum is new and well-organized.

A great day out, takes about 3 hrs in total to view the four sites on a saver ticket currently 38 euros for a family of four. Just amazing to see.

Well worth exploring. Lots of steep walking. Take water and wear tennis shoes. They do not allow camera bags inside and you must check them at the entrance.

This is a very interesting museum, but check the opening times before you plan your day. You may be there when the Roman Centurion is on duty. Don't forget to say 'AVE' (Hi).
