A classic example of simple amphitheatre design that shows there has been no need to update the blueprint since Ancient Roman times. A wonderful museum upstairs, too, with a "Last Supper" fresco, showing the menu that night was…..squirrel!

A great museum for telling the Roman history of Spoleto. Since 1956, the amphitheatre was re dug up and uncovered. It is amazing that a convent was built over the site. This is a museum not to be missed when in Spoleto

. . . so how could we not visit. It is part of the well organized and arranged museum of Roman times in Spoleto and we spent a good couple of hours visiting - time flew and we were surprised how much we'd seen.

All of the seating area and many other elements have been restaurant to the point that it is more a reproduction than a historic monument. Despite this, the site does no give a real sense of the grandeur of the original structure

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...
