The ancient city of Saepinum covered about 12 hectares and was surrounded by defensive walls with four main gates. Saepinum developed from 2 AD to the Augustan era. The layout of the town is clearly visible and its most important structures were its temple, forum, basilica, baths and its 'macellum' or indoor market. The most intact building is the theatre which is horse-shoe shaped and surrounded by 18th century buildings built of stone taken from the theatre itself! As well as visiting the ruins themselves the site is often used as a location for dance and theatre events in the summer.
Saepinum near Sepino is free of charge, where to park is a bit hard to figure out (as is finding the place) but the restaurant has enough parking places.
