A collection of museums with a very nice view. I visited the place late so I couldn’t go in but I fed my eyes with the view. PS: You can’t visit all the museums in one day, you’d have to assign one for each day so you can see everything

Lovely place to hanging around, have a coffee or dinner, laying on the benches and enjoy sunshine. Famous Leopold Museum, Modern Art Museum and other museums all here. Cross the road of Museumsplatz you will see the beautiful Maria Theresa Square.

I liked the hotel. The room was nicely decorated. The breakfast was really good. The service at the front desk was excellent. I think it is a bit overpriced.

This place used to be glorious, a lovely place to hang out with friends, now the beautiful statue is sitting in a cage, the water fountain is not there. Who cares about vandalism? Id love to get rid of em just to enjoy the place! Its very beautiful tho.

One of my favourite spots in the city. Not only you have all the cool museums around you, this is also a place where people come to meet, drink and chill with their friends during warm nights. Very much recommended to grab a drink and just enjoy the atmosphere there.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
