Fodor's Review

The remains of this 2,000-year-old Roman settlement have been extensively rebuilt, with substantial portions of the ancient town walls and gates, streets, water pipes, and heating systems all in evidence. The 1st-century-BC theater, described as the best-preserved ancient complex north of the Alps, has been gloriously restored in the last few years.
