Stunning detailed archaeology which is well presented. It is worth paying to enter the crypt to see this work although not always staffed. There was also a wedding the day we visited which was extraordinary as the guests all had hand fans and the pews...More

Wow! Glad I read other reviews and when visited it was open. So cheap to access €1 each! Value for money is amazing, a real in-depth guide to a great archaeological find! Even accessible for the disabled with chair lifts and level grating. Amazing mosaics,...More
