Teatro Greco-Romano is, or rather, was a theatre a very long time ago! It is completely underground and spread over several streets. Over time, houses and other buildings have been constructed over the theatre site. Above ground you wouldn't know it even existed, but of course it's a totally different story under the road surface. We took the theatre tour as part of the Napoli Sotterranea (Napoli Underground) Tour. The whole thing cost 10 euros and it was worth it, and we hardly ever go on tours, as we prefer to travel on our own. This one is a must. You see the theatre walls and other bits of it as you walk around, under the ground surface, and as you go up and down a number of steps. It is simply amazing. We entered through a door of what looked like a normal house in a normal Napoli street, and then the surprises started as we began to descend! Eventually we resurfaced and exited through a pizza shop! Quite an experience!

Only partly visible because tens of houses have been built over the Theatre during the ages, but parts are still visible and accessible. Great tour, in combination with Napoli Sotterranea

It´s a tour we can do with Napoli Soterranea, Napoli Soterranea tour ends at this place. I found this part more interesting than the begining of Napoli Soterranea.

In its past, Naples was a walled city and in the 12th century, residents were forbidden to build residences outside the city walls. Accordingly, as the population and the need for new housing increased, the city size increased vertically. And, the ruins of Naples Grec-Roman origins were literally used as foundations for new construction. The Greco-Roman Amphitheater is just one example of antiquity literally being built over. The remnants were only re-discovered 25 years ago and only a small portion of the amphitheater is open for public viewing.

I visited this ancient theatre as part as a guided visit to Napoli Sotteranea(Naples underground).The visit does't last too much,maximum 30 min,and you can see a little remaining part of the former roman theatre.There are a few not very big halls with dioramas presenting scenes from the old Naples residents' life. An interesting fact:a window of a contemporary house opens in the upper side of this undergrounds.Interesting view from a bedroom,don't you think? :)
