The ruins of Saepinum (modern Altilia) depict the layout and foundation of a Roman town, as well as a couple buildings. There are two main roads that cross in the middle of the town, with four original gates to enter at either end of the...More

Wonderful afternoon walking around the historical site. Indeed free of charge, 100% freedom in roaming the Roman site (pun intended!) and free parking. Just make sure to google map Altilia. It's actually not in the sepino city

There are many ancient sites in Italy, and many are highly commercialized and crowded (see Pompei). Saepinum is at the other extreme: located in a rural area, removed form congested city traffic (see Pompei). You are free to take your time and enjoy a self-guided...More

Well preserved ruined Saepinum is a good example of a Roman provincial town. Originally established by the Samnites, it was conquered by the Romans in 293 BC and flourished in the first two centuries AD. Today this walled town retains three of its four original...More

Not many people (Italians or tourists) make it to Molise and that's a pity because it has a lot to offer. Saepinum is a great reason to make the trip. The ruins have been well restored and give you a sense of what a prosperous...More

Hi Dennis, we are old and can't walk too far. Also we need facilities ie restroom close by. Could we get around Saepinum. It looks fantastic but maybe inaccessible. Ciao a tutti, abbiamo appena visto un programma alla RAI3 su Saepinum e vorremo visitarlo, Ma, ci sono servizi adeguati per gli anziani? Possiamo camminare ma non a lungo!

Facile rispondere: Non so consigliare perché non conosco Sepino, Visitero' il sito la prossima settimana. Mi preme dire che mi sarei aspettato che rispondesse almeno un contributore informato.

We are really keen to visit Molise. We visited the Vasto area of Abruzzo and loved it and are now keen to explore the archeological sights and the historic areas of Molise. Any town, village or agratourismo which would be a nice base, any nice eating places, any tips really!
