  • An archeological walk in the open air, we recommend a good guide to perceive a little of the life that was. The theater where St. Paul preached, the library and many other monuments oblige the walk for those who pass by these parts

  • It seems to be stopped time. They are not as conserved as Pompeii or Paestum in Italy but it is very nice to walk them
