  • Definitely a go I would say. Also keep in mind that you’d better have a guide so that you can have a full grasp of the such an antique place.
  • Sad that so little of this important city is left. Whilst you get some sense of what it would have been like you don't visualise the bustle of a thriving community. The church of St Paul is probably best preserved although as it is being worked on you don't get to walk down inside it at present. Certainly worth visiting if you are in the district but not if you have to drive 3 hours each way.
