As with a lot of sites in this area of the world, each building has layers of narratives to know about. What you are seeing is not just one thing, but a series of events. The Temple of Jupiter built around 300 ad and then...More

Making my way back within the walls, I stopped at the Baptistry of St. John, originally the Temple to Jupiter. The panels surrounding the font looked medieval, vaguely Celtic. Three fairly simple stone sarcophagi stood along the walls. A very contemporary-looking bronze of St. John...More

Typically included with the church and crypt, it is a small building with great carvings inside and out. Stay a bit and let your eyes accommodate so you don't miss anything. By all means, look UP

The place isn't bad but I think that when you compare the price to some big monuments around the world you get really mad. It's too expensive to see one statue inside of a small room without any context.
