Saw Roman Theater from Volterra

We viewed the ruins of the Theater from atop the streets of Volterra. They are very impressive and give an idea of the influence Romans had us this area.

Quick look from above was all it took for us. When in Italy, one starts to take sites like this for granted... OK, stop and think for a moment how it survived and how long ago people actually enjoyed theater performances ... but that was all I could get out off it on that day...and couple of pictures. I do...

On your walking tour of Volterra be sure to check out the Teatro Romano. We took in the sights from above on the city wall and did not walk through the grounds. Even so, it is a very interesting site and you will enjoy it even more if you can find some literature on its history to guide your observations.

We didn't actually enter the theater, we took a walk along the city walls. View from here was phenomenal. I don't think you would have as good a view if you were actually in the theater itself as it is at the foot of the city walls.

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
