  • It is actually not that small but obviously not comparable to what you may find in Rome. A very interesting site that was discovered about 100 years ago. The are signs with explanations in English.  more »

  • There's a focal point in the theater (you can see it on the ground), once you stand on it the whole audio environment changes, as though you have been put inside some enclosed facility. Sounds become curved your way :-) very peculiar experience. Otherwise, a mix of Greek and Roman stuff, preserved in pretty good shape. Most probably, some university or something
  • It's a very beautiful setting but as usual badly maintain and hardly find some old panels with the item description. It will be great, if they could make a coffee shop inside. People could enjoy the view and nice air around, as in the city is so dusty and gassed from the thousands of old cars running around. Dont forget to look at the Birds Roman mosaics hiding somewhere at the back of the site.
