Fantastically well preserved street that was the centre of action 2000 years ago serving as a marketplace and meeting place. You can almost imagine how it was. If you visit you have to walk down the street. Enjoy!

Curetes Street was once the main street of this place, and when you walk down this well preserved road, you can't help but admire how advanced ancient civilizations actually were in so many ways. The columns on either side and the stone slabs are in...More

There used to be a lot of stores on both side of street. All famous tour sites are located next to this street. It is better to walk from upper entrance which you can walk down instead climbing up.
