Big columns at the end of the Via Apia, one of the most important routes of the Roman empire. In the same square there is the house where lived and died the Eneide's writer. Great views of the harbour.

Located at the nicest part of Brindisi, looks very beautiful especially by night. Impressive ruins. Also offers a nice view to the other side of harbor.

Great to see this and visualise what it meant to Romans about to embark or those returning from military manoeuvres so foot weary and far from home.

The history is interesting and u get a sense of the importance of the port in Roman times but not worth a detour if you are in the area. Lots of other more interesting places in Italy
