Set among old olive trees with broad trunks, one can see remains of structures dating back to Greek times. There is a small but nice museum on the premises. Right inside the entrance stands the remains of a Norman era cathedral. Definitely worth a visit!

Very interesting ruins and museum, especially the ruins of a large church. Unfortunately, the road has been built before the excavations started and it "cuts" the archeological site in half, including the Roman Forum.

Really great place, available only by car. If you have a possibility - go for a concert in ruins, usually mid August
