Fasinating museum and ancient Roman theatre - Well worth a visit!
May 2019 • Couples
The Antiquarium is built on the remains of the Domus di Scilla, which was large and wealthy, as can be seen from the amazing floor mosaics, ranging from the 1st century BC to 2nd century AD. The main floor mosaic depicts the monster Scylla capturing Ulysses’ companions and wrapping them up in its coils. The monster, at the centre of the scene, is represented as a bare-breasted female with acanthus leaves at its ends and has fierce dogs’ heads biting Ulysses’ companions heads. According to Homer, Ulysses is warned by Circe against Scylla, the sailor-devouring monster with twelve feet and six horrible heads at the end of many long necks, half of a human female, with a fish tail and dogs coming out of its hips or shoulders. There is an interesting collection of relics from the necropolis. The Inguvine Tablets refer to Gubbio, a suburb of Fontevole. One of the relics is a bronze bed. Part of the bed-head features a donkey head and a bust of Artemis. The donkey head is very realistic with a wispy mane and dilated nostrils. Artemis’ hair is parted in two bands. She has big eyes, a half-open mouth and quiver of arrows on her right shoulder. One from the 2nd century is of a marble perfectly formed foot. Part of an iron rim of a male-type parade chariot. The lamina together with a series of big square-head nails belonged to the wheels, of which the wooden part is lost.

Interesting Roman theatre
Mar 2019 • Friends
Interesting Roman theatre, about a five-minute walk from the old town (if that).

Has a large, free car park next to it.

The €3 entrance fee also includes entrance to the nearby museum. However, the theatre can be easily viewed from outside without entering.

enjoyable vist to the ancient theatre and museum
Oct 2018 • Friends
Visited for an 1 1/2 hour the theatre, as well as the near by museum for 3 Euros pp. The museum is build over the ancient temple and archeological site seen through the floor. Ancient pottery, jewelry and artifacts are displayed and described. No wash rooms nearby, The site is just outside the city wall. Parking a few blocks away.

Good view of it from afar.

No need to make a special effort to see this as it is there for all the world to see as you drive into Gubbio. It is still impressive considering it is from Roman times.

Another Roman Theatre.
Jul 2018 • Couples
Like many other Italian cities, you can also visit the remains of a Roman Theatre in Gubbio.
The complex was built during the first century aD by using square blocks of limestone from the local area. The walls' covering is ashlar.
The tiers, having a diametr of 70 meters, are divided by short stairs in four parts.
Externally to the tiers there is a colonnade of arches on pillars. The upper one, with another colonnade, today missing, would have formed a portich going all around the theatre.
In summertime (July/August) it becomes a suggestive scenario for playing masterpieces of classical authors.
The theatre is also well visible from the outside; if you dont have much time and if you don't want to spend your money on entrance fees, this is an option as well.

Would have been great too see how they used the place back in the days
Jun 2018 • Family
Visited with kids. Not as huge as in Rome naturally, but if you come to Gubbio, you should see this place. Entrance fee was something like 3€ for an adult. Small kid for free. There is a play ground for small kids right next to the place and free parking also.

Great ruins to wander around
Jun 2018 • Couples
We stayed in Gubbio and used the car park ( free) next to the ruins every day . We went into the museo and obviously then into the teatro . There is a lot more to see in there than you initially think and the views around are great as well . A very well preserved ruin & it is lit up at night . Just across the road from the old walls of the city .

Well kept site
Apr 2018 • Couples
This ancient Roman theatre is easily visible from the road and accessible by a short path from one of the free open air car parks just outside the old town walls. It was a nice well preserved structure. There was not a lot of information on offer but you could buy a ticket which gave direct access to the theatre and also a small museum opposite. We did not feel it was worth the extra fee.

Interesting Roman Site
Sep 2017 • Couples
Quite a significant remnant of a roman theatre, with an interesting little museum nearby, and on request the custodian will take you across to see the remains of a nearby roman villa, with good mosaic floors. The whole surrounding area is littered with bits of roman wall and tile.

Impressive Ruins and Informative Museum
Sep 2017
We have been to Gubbio several times, but never really stopped to take a careful look at the Teatro Romano. Well, this time we were not disappointed. After spending about 1/2 hour in the museum adjacent to the ruins (watched a video and looked at artifacts and mosaics), we spent a bit of time wandering the theater. It cost 3 euro for the museum and entrance to the ruins...worth every centissimo!!!! There is a large, free parking lot very near the theater.
