A small town amphi

The Volterra amphi is well-preserved and easy to visit. It shows the structure of an amphi, for larger amphis visit Sicily, Crete, Tunisia or many more mediterranean places.

Locate just outside of one of the main entrances to the city, you can't help but miss this impressive piece of architecture. Be sure to look at it from street level and above from inside the city

The best view is free and from above. However, you can buy a joint ticket that allows you to see all the sights for one low price.

A short stop here to view the site. No entry on that day because of excavating work of some sort was going on. Yet you can walk up the road and see it from above and get a better view of almost the whole site.

No need to pay to view the teatro, just view from above. Amazing to think this was the city dump until the 1950's at which point mental patients started excavating the site when city funding could not be obtained. Have a look at least...

Our guide book claimed that it was one of the most complete Roman theatres which had been renovated. I can only say that the writer had not been to Taormina in Sicily where all the seats are in place and performances are held periodically.

The Teatro Romano was a surprise since we only went to see the city of Volterra. We parked down below and walked up the long steep hill. We walked all along the side and up the hill beside the ruins. Very interesting find.

Great quiet spot to peer down at the ruins of the Theater and Baths...both areas are clearly defined. Can also walk over to the entrance and walk closer inside the Theater but it costs a small fee

the amphitheatre is both stunning and marvellous which feels natural as its almost carved onto the side of volterra, its definitely worth a visit if your in town with wonderful panoramic views from the top road!
