  • Really nice place to spend the day, a lot to see but everything it’s very abstract because are basically just ruins. Good tip would be to download a virtual map that reconstructs the forum and you can see it in enhanced reality. Not very crowded place and not very much of a walk
  • We had a terrific experience at this library. The staff was extremely helpful. We are in our latter 80s and they did everything possible to make our visit extraordinary.
