Small but nice.

This is not a huge Roman tneater and it is sort of hidden down a side street but well worth a visit.

The Roman theater is in Centro and can be viewed free from the street, however, if you want to explore it you can buy a 3 Euro ticket that admits you to the museum and allows access to the grounds. The museum is small but with a few interesting pieces from the teatro and information about the discovery and excavation... More

The theatre is still in use for concerts and theatre, 2000 years after it was built, and makes an interesting focal point for the city centre. Worth a visit but I I don't think it is worth paying for the museum that goes with it.

Let your imagination take you back to the Greek and Roman theatre productions, with masks on display and information about the satyrs, tragedies and comedies which were staged in this venue. If you can ignore the open air exhibit of 21st Century plastic drinks bottles, other rubbish and the smell of urine at the upper railings where the stray cats... More

The Roman theatre is not intact but it is in a quite good condition. You can see it easily even without paying the entry.

This "museum" was full of models made of paper mache or similar material and appeared to contain nothing authentic except for the theatre itself. Save yourself the entry fee and see another Roman theatre for free in Piazza Sant'Oronzo.

The theater is in good condition as ancient theaters go. The museum attached is small and basic but serves the purpose of explaining the basics of how a Roman theater worked. Cheap entry, and being able to climb around the seats is cool.

I'm very glad I checked this out but it was pricey to get in - all things considered. However, if they spend the entry on making more of the museum then this will be an awesome attraction one day. It must be a magnificent place to see a performance at. If you LOVE history then do it, it's great to... More
