This ancient Roman Theater was interesting but was no big deal. Had to view the theater through a wire fence. The theater was in somewhat good condition however. Very little information could be found about the theater. You do have to spend too much time...More

We were wandering the city and came upon this very well preserved Roman theater. I give it only an average rating simply because there are so many Greek and Roman theaters throughout Europe to compare it against. This one you just get a nice view...More

This is a wonderful restoration/preservation in the middle of the older area of Trieste. We visited here with Demian Sem of Istranka Tours and he provided us with some of the background. Would've loved to have more details on how they found this and/or restored...More
