5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This place have near 2000 years built. The history is very interesting. To know that the Arena where the gladiators fought in the past and now the Occidental world take this word Arena to name their coliseums is very funny.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

I originally scheduled the tour in Spanish, but there was a strike the day of our visit, so it was re-scheduled to an English one. We were so lucky that it happened, because our guide was Nina, the archaeologist-teacher-guide. Her tour was one of the best ones I've had, she puts her heart and love into the tour, She knows so much about the topic, and she has a great sense of humor. Nina is a top-notch guide!.
