Truly worth the visit even only if for the views let alone the amazing historic remains. You can walk on the very roads that the Romans and those before them did.

Steep above the clementines and the black and white cats and the crumbling ocher palazzo in Santa Flavia. Gorgeous sea views and lichen covered ruins among the grass and wild flowers. Many mosaics left in the sunshine and a fascinating little museum with amazing pottery...More

You have to take a narrow road up the mountain with quite a few switchbacks. The entrance fee is 4 euro. The settlement is mostly in ruins and many of the signs are damaged but the expanse of the place is impressive and the views...More
