A lesser Colosseum, but way older, easier to 'take in' and very well preserved. Nice to see something so old still standing, and still celebrating what it was built for.....Not the slaughter of slaves, criminals, Christians etc., but just the performing Arts. Sadly, it's not...More

Marcellan’s theatre predates the Colosseum. Conceived by Julius Caesar and completed under Augustus, it could hold 20,000 spectators. It is currently used as a summer concert venue. Just beautiful

We discovered this gem when we had a meeting point nearby. The musical offerings were great. We wished we could have had more than one night to enjoy them.

Unusually, this Ancient Roman structure is less popular than the Roman Coliseum. This similar structure is just a theater, older and built before Christ, and is much better preserved than the Roman Coliseum. I think it’s during the second week of April called: Culture Week,...More

If you are in the area you should stop and get a few pictures. It is history. A tour guide would be able to tell you more but it is an ancient theater with history of its own.

We have seen this monument – a Roman Theater turned into an apartment building – many times, but this is the first time we saw it from the Jewish Ghetto. This is where you can appreciate it as part of what was once a minor...More
