Well preserved Roman amphitheater

Really very well preserved and almost as impressive as Rome itself. Entry fee but very little info provided for it better to look it up on the unesco site

Loved outside (the place closed minutes before we arrived there). Definitely a place to visit next time (with doors open).

This is probably the best preserved Roman coliseum I have seen. Still in very good condition and much has been restored. Gives a great idea of what it was like to watch the fights, races, etc in the Roman era. The tour guide provided very good description and in particular the way that the seating was arranged for the different... More

Stunning by night just to wander around and so much quieter than the daytime. Lots of restaurants to sit at and admire the view.

While not as big as the Colosseum in Rome, it is completely there and still used, these days for bull fights. The english audio tour is worth the small cost.

The amphitheater is right in the middle of the old town. We were lucky to get a parking space across the street. The amphitheater is still in use and it's fun to see the seat numbers on the stone seats. You can get around pretty quickly. I liked this mini coliseum. You could almost see the gladiators

This is a definitely must see. The amphitheater is smaller than the coliseum in Rome, but it's just as impressive. Apparently, it is still being used. A friend mentioned that she was able to see a concert in it. This would have been a wonderful experience and I wish we would have checked to see if there were any events... More

The full-size arena gives one a strong impression of how the original facility must have looked. The various seating areas are easily accessible. Most interesting are the vaults and galleries behind the seating areas. The significant amount of reconstruction detracts somewhat from the experience compared to the Arena at Nimes.

Unfortunately it was closed when we visited, but it was very worth while the overnight stay to see it regardless.
