This is about a 40 minute walk from the marina, and about 1km from the Ciao Ciao restaurant and is worth a visit.  It is free, and we were had a personal guide who walked us through the property and did his best to explain the site to us in Italian for about 30 minutes. We gave him a tip at the end.

This the upper levels indicate very plush roman palaces with mosaic floors, fountains with indoor plumbing. There is also evidence of ancient , cobbled roads, one  leading toward the sea and another leading to the North Gate which they say are from ancient Sibari from 444 BC. There is a small theater and many columns and capitals. There is some question by scholars as to whether this is the site of ancient Sibari which was destroyed by the Crotones and wiped off the face of the earth by diverting the river Crathis to flood the town.
