Sure, there are lots of bigger Roman arenas, but we found this one to be almost as interesting as the larger one in Nîmes. A Roman town had the amenities of Rome's larger cities on a smaller scale. If you can, catch an evening performance there, but rent extra cushions to be comfortable. Depending on the weather, also bring something... More

As Roman theatres go, this doesn't rate that highly, although certainly one of the main site in this lovely town. The entrance fee is only a Euro, although the best views looking down upon the theatre from the Piazza dela Libertà are free.

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.
