The hippodrome is really impressive for its size and what remains. The necropolis is also worth seeing. Plan to spend about 30 mins - 1 hr depending on your level of interest.

I wandered around here early in the morning and really enjoyed it. As well as the ruined Hippodrome there is a beautiful arch, a necropolis and a ruined Crusader church. There are colourful flowers everywhere and lizards sitting on the stones.
