Reviews of Exeter


Few cities in England have the simple beauty of Exeter, not too big, not too small, made for the people and the dimensions of their life. Founded by the Romans under the name of Isca Dumnoniorum. It was, at the time (50 AD) the most western Roman fortress in Anglia. Today Exeter is a lively city, with nice restaurants and bars, few interesting museums and an incredible and marvelous Cathedral (don't miss the chance to see it).
