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!

The museum was very interesting. The amphitheater doesn't exactly compare to the ruins in Rome only because the ruins in Rome are on such a grand scale. For a small exhibit and small theatre, it was excellent. And uncrowded.

Located in the center of town, right near the Information center, it is a great example of roman construction. We did not go thru the museum that is attached.

When I was there the stage area was covered with a modern wooden one as there's a festival going on so I was unable to see the mural. Still was worth it, plus the museum is not too bad either. Also it's good to see places like this still being used.

Next to the Archaeological Museum and on the same ticket. A little over-restored perhaps, but certainly worth a look.

It sits on the grounds of the museum but up from Piazza Liberta, it is a free and easy look down, back into time.

This can be seen and photographed from the nearby street but you will need to enter the archaeology museum to actually walk and sit in it.

The teatro is behind the former church of St. Agatha, currently housing the National Archaeological Museum, where you gain access. This is located on the west side of Piazza della Libertà where you can view it through an iron fence. You will need to pay admission to museum to see the ruins but you can get a good view from...
