I went there, the mosaic paintings were dusty and hard to look at and there was these big flying bugs EVERYWHERE. Not to visit again

Located in deep countryside, reached by narrow lanes not fit for the faint at heart to drive on, the site offers some very interesting Roman mosaics, including some depicting gladiatorial images.
