The site was closed for an undetermined period. They redirect visitors to a small nearby site of no great interest. Better to make sure they are open before making your way there.

The birth place of two Roman Emperors, Trajan and Hadrian, this place is still being excavated. It resembles Pompei but on a smaller scale. The amphitheater is really impressive. Of course for Game of Thrones fans, it is where they shot the dragon pit scenes...More
