This site is well worth a visit the old ruins are interesting to see but be careful as the walkways are uneven. there is a little theatre on one side on the site which does have a performance every so often for RR400 but the shows aren't regular but if you do see one it is interesting

There aren't as many ruins as I imagined. And the ones there seem a little too touristy. Still, this is one of the top places in Sevastopol. I just tend to enjoy different things.

This is as good as Troy. I was absolutely gobsmacked ... far beyond my expectations. An absolute treasure trove for Ancient Greek, Roman and right through to Medieval.

This is a beautiful place right by the sea. Even if you are not into history, it makes a lovely walk, especially in summer. Well preserved and kept, this is a must see visit if you are in the area.
