We took the bus to go to the theater, but in reality, the theater is in walking distance. Just walk up the hill and in 10 or 15 minutes, you'll see the theater. But when we got there, it was closed for renovation. Couldn't find a way in, so we just took a few pictures on the outside. But on... More

We visited on our last day and are so glad we did. This is free to visit, and the Dolmus stops right outside (if you're going from Gumbet you need to cross the road which can be pretty busy). So all in all well worth taking half an hour to experience some heritage.

It was easy to find it by foot. There goes a busy road here, so it is quite dangerous to cross the street. Amphitheater looks nice, though we could not get in. We looked at it through the holes of the fence. So be sure to visit it not on monday.

Very manageable historical sight right off the main road. If you want daily views of it, stay across the street at the Antik Teatro Hotel.

We paid a nice visit at this little greek ancient theater and we learned that the term "amphitheater" is a missnomer according to the local guide. He meant that the word "amphitheater" applies only to theaters with rounded circle formations. Broken circles and/or semi-circles should be properly called ancient theater,An amphitheater is one like Colosium in rome. Otherwise all else... More

The amphitheater was well preserved and has a very nice vantage point of the surrounding area. Its was free to visit, and you are able to climb around and enjoy it. It is a bit of a hike up the hill to get there though.

Went here to see a great show. Great acoustics and great views. Too bad about the road, but it is ok. Before the show it was nice to wander around and take in the views.

Amazing acoustics, shame about the dual carriageway right in front of it. The amphitheatre was really stunning to look at, but the highway kinda ruined it
