  • This place could be a jewel to visit, if there would not be barriers everywhere to prevent you to go further. So better save the money and admire it from above. It is definitely more impressive.
  • Amazing site. Well preserved, and close to the city centre. A helpful audio guide in many languages. The entry was free on the day of my visit which is another bonus.
