The Romans really knew how to situate An amphitheater ! Like Taormina in Sicily that frames Mt Etna from the stage, this beautifully frames a forested mountain backdrop . That alone makes it a great place to sit and imagine yourself at at a play and there were no crowds on a Saturday afternoon in September. The theatre is reintegrated... More

This is a good example of a roman amphitheatre although heavily restored by concrete in the seating area perhaps because it is used for performances It would benefit from better interpretation signs in the theatre area. The adjoining museum of roman artefacts and signs is well done

There was a festival going on and the entrance was fenced off. We looked at the theatre through the railings. It is a compact little place, there are others that are bigger, but here there is an immediacy about it. It is there right in teh centre, it is still being used thousands of years later This is a compact... More

Loved the performances in the summer. Bring extra clothes for evening performances, and a extra cushion helps too. Easy to get to. Plenty of cafes and bistros near.

The Roman theatre and the accompanying museum were some of my favorite things about Spoleto. The theatre has a stunning view of the countryside and is a great place to go learn about the history of Spoleto. Must see!

This is a small theater--others in Sicily are larger and more impressive. There was no access the day we were there so we had to look at through a fence. The seating is largely reconstructed, but the backstage elements were wiped out some centuries ago for a church. You come across the theater almost immediately after emerging from the parking...

It is rare to be able to stay in an hotel right next to such a structure, which is overlooked by the hotel dining-room. Museum & Theatre are excellent & have free admission. Could have spent hours there.

This small Roman theater is well preserved and located on the grounds of the Spoleto archeological museum. The museum itself is small was has several well preserved and presented roman artifacts. There are large scale photos of areas of Spoleto and associated history. There is a modest fee for entry. The Teatro and museum was across a small plaza from... More

Armed with a map we walked in circles around this sight..... Three times. However we were unable to find an entrance. We tried several potential entry points without success. There was signage directing us to a certain entry.... But when we got there.... No signage and no open doors.....eventually we gave up and went elsewhere. I hope that you have... More

I think I loved the sites in Spoleto so much more than other places just because of the lack of crowds. I was mostly alone in the Teatro Romano most of the time, including the connected museo. I was able to walk up and sit in the stands for a while. It was a beautiful morning!
