It's fascinating excavated remains include city walls are largely intact and the mosaic floors and foundations of many houses and public buildings remain. In the baths, you can see the network of stone heating ducts beneath the now-missing floors. Archaeologists estimate that only 10 percent of the city has been excavated until the early 2000s.

There is also a museum that has various objects, coins and surgical tools displayed that were found by archaeologists during their excavations. There is also a café / restaurant and a gift shop where you are able to buy some souvenirs.
