We visited as part of an organised pilgrimage and watched the film show and toured the ampitheatre and the coastal walk before having lunch nearby. Well worth seeing how the location has changed over 000's of years.

The collection is varied and grows every time I go. The dig is being worked on all the time and things are being uncovered and reconstructed to attain some of their former glory. I return again and again.
