If you find yourself in Gubbio, there is an open area used for car parking for the visitors to the Tuesday market. The ruins of the Roman Theatre are visible and accessed from the car park. It is a splendid example of an open theatre. It is quite large and mostly intact. I often sat on its steps to read... More

Those of you who have seen expansive Roman theaters like the ones in Sicily will ho-hum this theater. BUT if you are in Gubbio you will find this interesting, because it is so conveniently located and so easy to get to. The ruins have been stabilized, and there are enough of them left that you don't have to spend the... More

Worth a visit, the ruins are quite good and give you a reasonable idea of a theatre. However the museum was excellent and had some very good mosaics as well as some interesting artefacts. Both were included in the price which was good value

This is just outside the main area of the town and quite walkable. The ruins are in rather good condition and there is an English placard explaining the origin of the buildings. Good example of Roman public edifice in the rural empire. I think this theater was First Century AD.

Not far from mediavel Gubbio is partly preserved and presented antique theater. You can imagine how they enjoyed there centuries ago, before Shakespeare, Molierre or Pirandello. A must when you visit Gubbio.

There are many Roman theatres in Italy but this is one of the least interesting I've visited. The one at the museum in Spoleto close by is for example much more interesting.

I was really surprised to find this here. It's definitely worth a look if you're in Gubbio anyway. It seems to be quite well preserved and they were doing some restoration work when we visited. I wouldn't bother buying a ticket to go right up to it. If you do want to though, I think you get them from the... More

The Teatro Romano sits at the bottom of the hillside medieval town of Gubbio. You will see it on your left as you approach Gubbio. I was fascinated by this place, which given its 2000 year + history, is actually quite well preserved. You can see that it is a mere shadow of its former glory, but there is enough... More

After a week in Italy these were the first Roman remains we saw. The theatre is heavily restored, but well worth a walk round as it gives you a good understanding of the scale of the town in Roman times.
