  • Powerful attraction. Majestic structure. We went on a tour from Pegasus, the guide got good, told everything in detail! Time was enough to climb far and wide. It's worth seeing once!

  • Although many say that this is a budget version of the Colosseum in Rome, I did not think so! A very majestic structure.

  • A fascinating little museum with gorgeous mosaics, interesting artifacts, and a handful of ancient homes. The real treasure here, however, was the gentleman curator who gave me a tour of the place! He had a wealth of knowledge, was eager to converse, and really made each piece come to life. Really a must-see is you’re at the amphitheater anyway.
  • Included in your ticket for the amphitheatre this place is often overlooked but well worth the 10 minute walk to see one of the best collections of Roman mosaics anywhere.
