Nice exhibit of early Roman city underneath a modern building in the historic section of Brindisi. It's free to get in and offers displays in English describing different sections. Absolutely a must-see in Brindisi.

Start at the Imformation Centre where they will give you a map marked with a walk around the Archeological area. It would be ease to miss the well kept, interesting ruins under the modern theatre. Entry is free and it is an easy walk right...More

This is an ancient Roman site and it is large and has been retained but sadly under a modern building which is practical use of the area as well as protecting the site. Does spoilt it a little.

This place is free so a 5 stars anyway. I'm an archaeologist anyway so I loved the place. You can just walk in off the street and it's quite moving. It was really very quiet when I went round and I feel like it's overlooked....More

This Roman site exists just below the modern street level in Brindisi and presents a small area of a Roman archaeological site viewed from a suspended metal walkway with short multi-lingual descriptions. What I found particularly of interest was the fact that the site is...More

Confused by the jumble of ruins that pass as an archaeological site? In that case, visit this museum lying just inches (ok, a bit deeper) below the modern streets of Brindisi. Although somewhat dark, there is a nice metal walk way around the perimeter of...More
