It preserves traces of the ancient walls, roads and some public and private monuments.
In particular, you can visit the remains of the Baths and the Theater, dated between the 2nd and 3rd centuries. d.C, which is the best preserved example of this type of public building in Liguria and one of the most notable in all of Northern Italy.
In the Antiquarium, in support of the visit, there is a rich selection of artefacts found after the excavations conducted since the end of the nineteenth century and partly still in progress. The exhibition is divided into sections that describe the different monuments and aspects of the material culture of the inhabitants of "Albintimilium" (Theater, Spa, toilets, daily life, the world of the dead, the economy and trade).
