This is a nicely restored amphitheater that gives a good idea of how the original looked and how effective it was as a place for the arts. The view from the top of the amphitheater is impressive, and one can see much of the city.

This has been reconstructed, but it gives you an idea of what it would have looked like. The acoustics are amazing. A whisper we made on the floor of the theatre, carried up to a member of our party on the top tier.

This theater located in Pompei really gives a nice feeling of what life must have been in the city before the Vesuve explosion. Well worth sitting in and reflecting on life of Pompeians.
