“Walking into Roman Empereor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Amazing site during the day (cheap also, three museums ticket!) and romantic scene at the night.
The anfitheater is in very good state and there guides and a good organization. Facilities are present.
The ticket is valid for three museums, all interesting and close each other.

“History up close”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This amphitheater is a great place to visit for and hour or two. The entrance fee is very reasonable. We took two 14 year old boys and a 9 year girl and they enjoyed exploring the site. We went through the museum first. The amphitheater is decaying a bit above ground but well preserved below ground level. We love that you can get in there and experience what you can only see from afar at the Colloseum in Rome. We went later in the afternoon and had the place to ourselves.

“visit it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

amazing place. as almost all the most precious monument of the south italy this anfiteatro is not very estimated. it's huge, amazingly interesting even if not very well cured. a bit hard to find it if you don't have a GPS but just ask around and everybody will point it out. visit it cos it's really worthwhile.

“Visit - you´ll have an Amfitheatre for yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Easy to find if you have a GPS. Unexpected cheap entrance price. Very much to see and explore. Besides the Amfitheatre itself, the Gladiator museum is included, situated on same premises. Go in there first, take a look at the model of the Capua Amfitheatre and then proceed outside to imagine how grand and majestic it was.

“Visit and be impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This site is not far off the main motorway between Rome and Naples, and not that far out of Naples. It seems to be hardly visited. We've been twice now with friends and remain impressed. You can wander below the amphitheatre and imagine the scenes in its hey-day. It was the home of Spartacus - this is where that legend started. We were told that in size it was second only to the Colosseum in Rome. Apparently the theatre hosts an art exhibition scattered throughout the ruins towards the end of September each year. We felt it was a privilege to wander about freely and with very few other people. It deserves to be better known.

A great day's outing would be to combine it with a visit to the Palazzo Reale at Caserta, which is only about 5 km away - at the exit to the road where you park for the amphitheatre, turn left and drive in a straight line!
