I went through this site with a boat tour group .We were a large group and accessibility and ease was somewhat slow. There was a abit of climbing up and down stairwells.It is a wonderful site for history lovers to view ruins and relics.

This is a stupendous museum site. The Roman Sarcophagus that have been excavated including several very unique burial chambers are fascinating. This is must see for anyone interested in the Roman Empire and its development in central Europe.

Fourth century art is rad. But in a serious note this is an amazing site. Spend a few hours and get ready to walk around and see literally centuries of history. The placards are informative and easy to understand. So glad we made time to visit.

It is possible to see even the "hidden" parts (there are glass walls... More

I was with a tour group. Our guide set the stage by telling us how people were commonly buried in Roman times. Then we visited this site. An unfinished chapel over various tombs one with paintings. TV screens were placed strategically to show representations of what the buildings would have been like. Our guide told us everything but there were... More

Very nice underground museum. When you buy a ticket you get a text about history and historical meaning of every room. It's fun way to spend your time and learn something.

Excellent underground excavation site. Interesting and spectacular video demonstrations help to imagine how the original buildings looked like. Well worth to visit if you are interested in such sights.
