Nice walk through the history of the city with lots of interesting stuff to see and a decent bar where you can chill out with an ice cream in the shade under a bright hot sun

This is a great vantage point. Interesting ruins and a small museum with a few pieces of statuary and other artifacts. There is a small coffee shop with few items. They do have public restrooms there.
