Interesting if you spend time reading everything. Small site and museum. Although the artefacts are well preserved the range of artefacts is limited. Need boots if walking around in wet conditions as outside paths on the site and between items can get very muddy.

I saw photos and the place seems nice, but when we went to visit we couldn't fine so much things to see. The entrance was 2/3€ per person.

Worths a 1-2 hour visit to see the remains of an old Roman city and the small entrance fee contributes to the discovery of much more stuffs in the area
