The site is well tended and the theatre is accessible... Climb to the top and imagine what it was like when it was full. Don't miss the really interesting archaeological museum with mosaics and other artifacts... On the foundations of a Roman house...

There was little signage to describe the location and the surrounding area is a bit overgrown. There are much nicer, more interesting sights in this town.

It's amazing to find Roman ruins all around Italy. The theatre in Gubbio is small, but still wonderful to see. Best viewed from the cable car going up the mountain! We walked to it, but the site was not open, fenced off. There was a ticket booth, but it was not open. I wouldn't have paid to go inside in... More

Just by chance I parked up in a free car park and it was the car park for the old TEATRO ROMANO. A magnificent place to visit as is the small museum. Good place to have a picnic when cool, but too hot in the dayin summer. There are lots of shows to see and these are well advertised all... More

Do the Italian children playing in the playground beside this theatre realise how lovely a location they are playing in? situated at the foot of Gubbio with lovely views up to the town and above. The location next to the playground meant that this was one Roman ruin that our kids ran to see! While we were there they were... More

The theatre is on the footh of the hill on which lies Gubbio. Unfortunately a metallic fence disturbs the visual of the theatre's arches. To entry the theatre costs 5 euro, but most of the people prefere to see the monument from the big park which outline it. To reach the theatre you have to walk for 10 minutes down... More

The first impression greeting visitors is the setting of this theatre. Although the remains do not do justice to the original design, it still is marvelous to admire and imagine the culture and society that built them. The peacful surrounding just outside the city walls enhance the ambience further.

We were wandering round the area and truly felt transported back to ancient Rome. The ruins were being tidied up when we were there in 2006, so presume the refurbishment is now complete. It is worth going into the little "theatre"/display area beside the ruins.

Lovely setting for this beautiful if slightly neglected ruin. There is a small museum nearby but not a vast amount of information. However,you don't really need it to soak up the aura of the place.It is certainly worth the time to sit and muse in the evening sunshine.

We could see the theater from the funicular and it looked great. We did not go because we were going to another attraction. But in hind sight wished we had.My daughter had gone to 2 other theaters which do not exist anymore except for the circular wall. In both of them, there is a house with a yard and a... More
