A bit of history to begin with:
|Roman ruins are free to access|
But back to our visit:
We were really surprised that despite the fact that it was a day off (in addition to beautiful weather), the town and its historical monuments were not besieged by tourists. And that was another plus 🙂
Small historical detour for those of you, who would like to know what colonies originally were: in ancient Rome, a colonia was a town that was a specific residential location for legionnaires who upon retirement were granted land and became citizens. This encouraged land development and stability and not least the extension of Roman “culture”.
