The ruins were a bit tricky to find but once there, it's really an impressive place.
We happened to go on a Tuesday when there's the added benefit of free entry. It's not expensive anyway and the audio tour is included. There are not many informative signs so the audio is essential and they have a child's version which even my 6 year old was taken with.
It will take at least a good couple of hours to get around and I would take drinks and snacks with you as there isn't a cafe. You start with the Greek part of the site and move on to the Roman. The contrast between them is quite evident and the roman mosaics are amazing.
It's a work in progress really, they've only discovered 20% of the site so far and they could probably do with making it a bit more interactive for the little ones, although during the high season I believe there is more going on.

We stopped here on our hike from L'Escala to San Pere Pescador for about 3 hours. Unfortunately I drive my wife nuts as I love to poke thru historical sites and listen to the whole audio tour and read as many descriptions as possible. I found this audio tour to be excellent with lots of insights on the ruins and what the early Greeks thought and how they lived. Then on to the Roman ruins right behind the ancient Greek city. The Spanish is doing a great job excavating the site and they are only about 1/3 finished but by all means if you love history you will love this site. Everything is numbered so you can follow along on the audio tape and you can stop and repeat for each stop. Our walking companions left long before us but on recounting our experiences we found they missed a lot of the Roman ruin areas which was too bad. Our mistake was not stopping to just sit and take a rest as by the time we finished our hike that day we were tired from standing/walking all day.

The historical significance of this ancient city alone is worth the visit, but the fact that it has both Greek and Roman ruins sitting next to each other is a real treat for history buffs. It also really helps understand the transition of cultures and people in the region. The audioguide is a must, and give yourself several hours. This place is an entire city even if they've only dug up 20% of it so far.

The views of this ancient towns are beautiful, not only that but he audio guide which takes you round is only €4 and a bargain I'd say as you receive 1 and a half hours of commentary taking you through the Ancient Greek and roman settlement. Definitely worth going to see
