The exterior is very plain and we were not really sure what this building was. We walked inside the door and were pleasantly surprised. Musso e Foro Romano is a beautifully preserved Roman temple that is now a small Christian church. The colorful, rich interior...More

Interesting with the Roman columns on the fascade. Located on a main square near the Tourist Information Office. Nice, semi-elaborate church interior

I have been to the Ronan forum and I liked this better. It was well signposted in english. They have a glass floor allowing you to see the roman street without damaging it. Very well done.

The entrance to this museum is located just off Piazza del Comune on Via Portica. It is a HIDDEN GEM. Admission price is €5 and would be worth twice that amount. As you step down into the entrance of the museum, there are numerous artifacts...More
