Close to a major road this relatively unknown set of remains is easily driven to. They are clearly laid out showing all the aspects of a significant Roman town on the Flavian way. It is relatively unknown and therefore very peaceful and uncluttered (we were...More

Great blend of Roman history and ruins. Lucky to be there when active dig was happening. Amazing to see what they are still uncovering. Worth the 5 euro.

Stunning place to visit and reasonably priced at €5 each, easy to find just followed the signs when we got closer to the destination rather than the sat nav. A must see if you're in Umbria!!!
