We actually photographed the first version of this place. The Roman Theater stands up wonderfully. While the Archeopark was trying to be a place for children, it turned into a place bursting with history. It has turned into a magnificent area in the city that will appeal to everyone from seven to seventy. Therefore, in this sense, I congratulate the Metropolitan Municipality once again from my heart.”
