This park has a load of fascinating displays and ancient ruins to get up close and personal to! It's hard to believe you can get right in among the ancient historical relics, frescos and ruins of the past. It can take a good few hours to get a proper look around but you will be glad for the experience and... More

Well worth visiting if you have any interest in history. The mosaics are stunning and walking around you wonder how much history remains below your feet.

If you are looking to see local history then this is the best place to visit. Spread out and all the mosaics have been moved under cover. There is a lot more to see. Unlike the other sites there are more complete sections of walls so you get a better idea of what was originally there.

The 7 or 8 attractions on the site were very varied and each relatively interesting. The main site had plenty of information, however, less could be said for the other relics. At best, there was a sign stating what it was, but other than that you had to use your best judgement - fortunately we knew what a lighthouse was!... More

I found this very interesting and great value for money €4.50 with a simple map that tells you were everything is. The mosaic floor collection was amazing.

We liked that we got a map of the ruins when we bought our tickets. It was easy to figure out what we were looking at, and the descriptions at the sites were great as well. We think some of the outdoor mosaics were covered up, but there were still a lot to see inside the buildings. It was pleasant... More

This is a fantastic place to wander around looking at Romania villas and amazing mosaics. We spent a good 3 hours seeing most of the site. We had lunch at King's cafe just outside the entrance on the harbour side.

This has got to be on everyone's list to visit. Took well over 3 hours to visit it all, House of Dionysus is covered, the mosaics are just truly magnificent, entry costs 2.50 euros and is extremely good value

If you want to be able to clamber about on ancient ruins with hardly any restrictions as to where you can go, then this is the place for you. The area is vast and contains incredibly well preserved houses and the surrounding buildings. You can get right up close to the ruins which help to bring it all to life.... More

This was good value for money and interesting, bit windy and fresh at this time of year. Would recommend it, allow lots of time and wear sturdy shoes
