  • With a ticket voucher you can see several monuments from the Roman era. The whole of them is very interesting. In the cryptoportico there is a screen where it perfectly explains its evolution

  • Because it was a ticket free day by chance, I entered it. Arched ruins are spread underground. If you're not interested in Roman ruins, you don't know what's interesting at all.

  • Long tunnel under the ground. Nice to visit during a heatwave. Good for people who love history and can speak Italian. No information in English.
  • Cool place, nice atmosphere. Great historical background. Interesting movie about the place
