The mosaic on floors and walls was so energising to the spirit . It was a great experience . Did not expect so many treasures there . Walking through the excavation site and the house where people lived till 1972 , probably not even aware of the historic significance of mosaic on their floor . I was quite caught up... 更多
We rented a car and drove it on our own. It was a nice day with plenty to keep us busy. The hand craft work shops have artists making the mosaics, amazing to see the time and energy spent. Lots of shops in the area, things are a bit pricey. Having a guide for this would be advised.
