Whilst you can get to a point on the Wall that surrounds Volterra to view this wonderful piece of Roman history, it's nicer to pay the "ferryman" as it were, as walk around the exhibit - that way you help to maintain to for future travellers. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting to see the Roman ruins but disappointing that there appears to be a restaurant sign right in the middle of what looks like an important historic site.

Quite interesting to visit though you cannot walk around the ruins. From above you can see the lay out of the theatre and the various rooms in the bath. If you don't wish to pay (though it Is included on the Volterra card) there is a good viewing point which overlooks it and you can get good photo opportunities from... More

This is just one of the museums in Volterra that is included in the day ticket. It can be seen from above without going in and the views are not much better from the inside because the path only goes part way around the perimeter. We went without researching its history and that was a mistake. When we visited there... More

The theatre and the baths are interesting survivals of the Roman era. They are less spectacular than some other Roman theatres I've seen, but they are worth visiting. The panorama view from the old city wall should not be missed

Stick to the town much better. Go see ruins somewhere else. The town is more interesting ruins are difficult to find and not well preserved But secluded

Historic roman theater, although this may fail to impress you if you have seen similar (and maybe bigger) structures in other places. Great view from the city walls.

It offers a good image of ancient civilization. You can visit (which means going into the small park and having a walk on the upper edge of the theater), but you can also view the structure from the town wall (by walking on small street immediately on the right of Porta Fiorentina). View from the town wall offers better perspective,... More

Located just outside the walls of Volterra lies this incredible ancient Roman theater. Well worth the the entry cost (a few euros) to go down close, or just view from above inside the city walls. A very simple presentation without much fanfare, but worth the time spent there.

Very impressive example of a Roman amphitheatre. However the best views of it are from above the city walls so don't bother with paying the very expensive entrance fee.
