We found this site extremely difficult to find even though we later realised we had travelled past it several times on the SS113. The sign to the actual ruins is quite small and not like the expected white on brown signs seen elsewhere for attractions....More

Excellent exhibition with pictures that really lightens the cutiosity about archeology. The kids loved the sceletons. We were let in for free even if we came on a Monday and it was closed, What a good service!

can't believe we had this place all to ourselves, the museo was only 2 euros and full of exhibits. Not difficult to find and not far from Cefalu.
