“Underwhelming, could be so much better”
Review of Parco Archeologico

Parco Archeologico
Reviewed June 3, 2018 via mobile

Having walked up (not actually that far but uneven so you need decent shoes) we went in as we’d got the multi-pass. The ruins are overrun with weeds and so nigh on impossible to picture what it would have been like. There are two boards with a sort of quasi badly translated english explanation.

Everything says they close at 17:30 but they were already closed at 17:15 after we walked all the way up there. We were able to look through the fence at the sites. The view from the top looks like it could have been amazing if we could have been let in to see it.

There was no charge for the archeological park the first week of December. There is a nicely maintained walk around the short loop trail . The ruins were a disappointment. Not much to see.

this has an entrance fee of 5euro. Compared to Pompeii, does not look like its worth paying an entrance fee and going in. But the park that it is in is very beautiful. Worth walking up to it. There is a water fountain too right opposite to the site.

The city has a lot to offer in terms of sights--not so much here. It is basically a walk through the park. We would not recommend this as an important stop while you are in this beautiful little city.

If you feel you just have to do this site, here are some cautionary notes. The climb up the steep cobble stone walk is a bit tricky if you have on your boots. Cowboy boots may look good, but they ain't make for walking here! The stones are slick and you have to go slow. Make sure you have good rubber soled shoes on this walk! The site is a bit of a walk from the "pick up" point--allow at least 30 minutes of leeway to get back safely. The signage is almost non existent--read up on what you are going to see PRIOR to the trip! There is no fee to visit this site.
