I appreciate that they are a donation based organization and restoring the history and story of this area. If you are in the area go, but otherwise can skip. Not enough intersting stuff

We visited this museum while hiking the path between Caolino and Pianoconte on a really hot day and it was pleasant to pause in the cool 18th century building at this excellent museum. The excavations of ancient thermal bathes predating the Romans are surprisingly complete...More

A very good guide took us around and showed us one of the only remaining saunas from Roman times. The pools are still 70c. Worth a detour.
