During the summer months there are musical and theatrical performances. As with the whole site remember to carry water and have some... More

The amphitheatre is a must to visit as it is great condition considering the age that it is. The way that it was built considering the tools that they had years ago is breathtaking. Sitting in it makes you really think about what it like in they days.

right on our doorstep in a fabulous location. Stunning setting. Usually great music and not too expensive. Could increase the toilet facilities as there is only one ladies loo!
