Well worth a visit. Spent about 2 hours on a leisurely visit to the site and the small museum. The audio tour is definitely worthwhile (included in the admission) as the site has many layers of history.

This huge site is extremely impressive and unmissable for lovers of Roman history and Roman buildings. We were amazed when we first saw it. It is set on a rise and therefore has wonderful far-reaching views from the site.
