By far the best interactive small museum and it was free to walk around the site. Great if passing through to other places

A very impressive site (which allows some access to visitors) and the history behind the theatre is the history of Malaga itself. The new state-of-the-art visitors centre with its interactive displays and helpful staff is also well worth seeing and the best part is it's all free!

The Roman Theatre in Malaga is an unmissable experience for all those in Malaga. It is a place where one can really have a sense of Ancient Roman life. However, its location is what makes it such a special location. It is nestles right under the Moorish Fortress of Malaga and opposite many great restaurants, namely Pimpi's (a famous tapas... More

The Roman Theatre in the heart of the bustling city of Malaga is a thing of great beauty. It is awe-inspiring to enter and walk carefully along the rows of ancient stone seating and to marvel at how very well-preserved they are - as is the stage and even the "armchair"-type stone seats down at the front (reserved for the...

The Romans really knew how to watch the arts and enjoy a theatre production. Here is no different and you can see all of it from the street. I have been inside as well really enjoyed both experiences, depends on how much you like the Roman experience as to whether you want to pay to get up close !

Well worth half an hour of your time on the way to or back from the alcazaba and gibralfaro. You can see it all from the available viewing points but can t go in. Interesting little interpretation centre on one side too, with lots of information about the use of the theatre on two whizzy digital displays, with some artefacts... More

Nice attraction in the city centre. For me, it's worth to look at it from the bench next to the Roman Theatre. But not necessarily worth buying the ticket and walking around it. Just worth to stop and look at it. Many nice restaurants nearby.

Having recently visited the Roman city of Merida in Extramadura I wasn't expecting to see anything like it in Malaga. But here is a perfect Roman theatre, only recently excavated and put on display in the most informative and welcoming manner. You can see the theatre seating clearly from the pedestrianised street, but go through the exhibition reception, which is... More
