Dating back to the Bronze Age, the acropolis offers encompassing views of the ruins. The site also includes city walls, a theater with a 52 m (170 ft) stage, a stadium, an agora, a necropolis, a gymnasium, and Roman baths.

  • Unbelievable place. Could easily spend half a day there. It's amazing the preservation and restoration work that they have done here over just a couple of years. Very much worthwhile and easy to get to. Very good value too. Don't forget to visit the amphitheatre - hold on to your ticket to ensure you can.
