San Lorenzo Maggiore (archaeological site) review Rate it

At the heart of the most densely populated city in Europe, you can stand in silence and feel as if you've been whisked back to Graeco-Roman Neapolis. Excavations of this astonishing archaeological site are still under way, but have so far revealed sections of the city streets as they were 2,000 years ago, complete with a butcher's, a dyer's, a bakery and a porticoed arcade. Admission includes a visit to the Museo dell'Opera, a small museum with displays that span the site's long history.
