  • One for those with a knowledge of history to visit and imagine the scenes where the somewhat excessive and violent whipping ceremonies took place, particularly in Roman times for Roman tourists. Imagination is vital as little remains and it is poorly looked after as it has become a site for the modern ceremonies of excessive alcohol drinking by the young, judging by the litter.
  • We went there and escaped by luck. We met two boys and later on two young men. These two walked very closely behind us and we felt very uncomfortable. They didn't rob us. Maybe because my husband looks so dangerous? Or because our backpack looks real shabby? After our visit I read the various reviews here about robbery and throwing stones and knew we escaped problems. So you better be careful!
