The amphitheatre is in the area with the Mosaics. It is a magnificent sight and quite breathtaking. You just feel as if you have gone back to Roman times. It is so impressive and a fantastic piece of architecture. It is difficult to imagine that the amphitheatre, plus the whole site has survived all these years. It is so worth... More

The whole site is a great way to while away a few hours before heading off for a beer. The ruins mosaics and views are excellent and the bars are just down the road. What more could you ask for

Good mosaic floors, large site, lighthouse, ruins, odeon. Too hot in the middle of the day because naturally it is all open.

Parts of this attraction have a very thoughtful somewhat over engineered tent which keeps the sun off visitors. Ancient theater is used for real performances

Im a huge fan of photography and also going to explore and see good history spots. The amphitheatre is well worth going to see - the views overlooking the sea are also breath taking and I was also to get some great snaps!!!
