It's a lovely historic place. If you come by car you have to park in a free parking few kilometers away from the site and take a bus that brings you there and returns you. The ticket for the bus is 2.5 Euro. There is no other cost to visit the site itself. Remember that the last bus will come back at 2:30 pm when they close the site. The site will reopen at 8pm until 11pm. Assign one to two hours to visit this place.
Beautiful. Incredible experience. Very well cared for and completely open to the public.
