We really enjoyed walking/climbing around the ruins. It is a good workout, no doubt, but great to see and experience. It would have been nice if there were some additional signs/plaques that indicated the different areas and what they were used for.

This is the site of the original Roman settlement and subsequent development. Forum, amphitheatre and general spacing is well laid out and preserved. Museum is also excellent. I spent a couple of very relaxing hours wandering around. Would be great for a picnic of a...More

Even if you take the funicular there is still a steep walk to the site but it's well worth it. The site has free entry (entry into the museum costs a few euros) and you can wander round the two amphitheatres to your heart's content.
