These are two fine Roman theatres next to each other and with amazing views over the city but during the summer they are turned into concert venues and the ancient atmosphere is lost because there are large modern stages erected together with all the other...More

Worth a visit if you are interested in Roman ruins. Easy to get to on the funicular railway. 2 good sized amphitheatres that are still used today. A lot of the ruins and other areas on the site have been repaired and restored, so not...More

Interesting ancient arena that’s been part of the history of this beautiful city for hundreds of years. Amazed at the condition it’s in. Better preserved that you’d think was possible. Worth a look for sure.

Can you imagine sitting down somewhere and knowing other people have been sitting in the exact same spot for 2000years. Well you can here. The history here. You have 2 theatres here to roam round .

We had wonderful weather which certainly helped, and the ruins were in amazing condition - different than many other amphitheatres we have seen in Greece or Italy where the stone is a lot lighter in colour. Great museum attached and only 4Euro entry fee.

Such a surprise to find these ancient ruins. Caught the funicular to the ruins. If travelling by train and within the hour your train ticket covers the funicular. Worth a visit.

Right there in the middle of everything, on the hill near the basilica, is the most unique ruin of the Roman theater. Our guide said that it was supposed to accommodate about 10K people....and b/c of this, the area is still used today for festivals....More

Built around 300 AD. So much still intact. Descriptive plaques help you understand what you are seeing. Thoughtful and intricate layout. Worth the visit.

yes but you have to buy a ticket for the tram if you don't want to walk up the hill (worth it)
