Although we recently visited a similar site in Merida, Spain, this ampitheater was well preserved and off in a quiet affluent area of the city. There was a lovely view and a peaceful cafe to hang out at overlooking the site.

We enjoyed our visit to the amphitheater, it is well preserved and really is in good condition considering it was only rediscovered in the 70's having been left buried. It was a hot day when we visited and there is not a lot of shade so our visit was brief. We did not take a tour as this was an... More

This theatre dates back to the 2nd century A.D., but it wasn't rediscovered until a landslide occurred in 1972. Experts carefully restored the theatre, and though their work is obvious, I think it has been nicely done. The white marble gleams in the sun and the facade of the stage features an Ionic marble colonnade. Seats are oriented toward the... More

The amphitheatre is found at the top of the hill in Plovdiv's beautiful old town. Although you do not need to pay to see it (there is a cafe and quiet street at the top from which it can be admired), it is worth paying the small entrance fee to scramble over the steps.

This Roman era theatre is quite well preserved and still used for contemporary performances. Right in the centre of the Old Town of Plovdiv - its well worth a look.

It's worth a visit. I didn't enter the theater because it was closed but I sat in a coffee place located next to it with a great view on the theater and town.

The theatre was nice but you can actually see everything there is to see for free. If you pay to get in you can walk around but we were not allowed to go on the stage which is the most interesting part.

여행하면서 본 로마극장중 잘 보존된편에 속함 안에들어갈수도 있지만 이미 로마극장을 여러번 본 사람이라면 밖에서 봐도 충분하다고 생각됨 그렇게 규모가 크지는 않음 별도 티켓구입도 가능하지만 콤보티켓구매시 조금할인가격에 갈수도 있음 여름철에는 그늘이없으니 저녁6시 이후가 그나마 해가 덜 강해서 나을듯 If you see lots of Roman theater, it's enough seeing out side. It's well preserved site but it's not big. If you want... More
