The Roman Theatre was built in the third century and is 86 M diameter and one of the largest remaining in northern taly and was designed to seat 15,000 watching whatever sport was popular back then. Parts were destroyed by an earthquake in the 5th century and buildings were erected around it in the 19th century and given all that it is remarkable that what is there has ben retained. One of the more interesting sites in Brescia.

Access is through a gate after visiting the Temple, though both are visible from the road.

The theatre is not in great shape, part having been built on in the 18th Century, yet you can see the seating, the arcades and under the stage and also walk through the complex and view it from different angles. Being next to the Temple, its importance isn't in doubt and it's fabulous to be able to stand here.

You exit back into the Temple before leaving the site. It was fun to walk down steps which people were using 2000 years ago!

I found it worthwhile walking from my hotel at night to take a look.

One is always inspired by the beauty and complexity of the old Roman structures.

Well done Brescia for bringing this back to life for us.

While the actual roman theatre is not really restored (like Nimes or Orange in France are), the items that are on display are very interesting. This is a great add on to the museo santa giulia

In the country full of major Roman and ancient ruins, the small "teatro" is a "poor cousin" . It is well well cared for, whatever is worth. It is accessible through adjacent museum and the visit is included in the museum fee.

Unless one is a "rock lover" and has extra time on hands...there are better things to see in Brescia.

The street itself is an old roman road and leads to well preserved ruins. Interesting to see the way the town has grown around it.

Given that it is often listed as a separate attraction, including on this site, it's quite unusual to try and rate Brescia's Teatro Romano (that'll be Roman theatre) - you see upon visiting in November 2019 I discovered that it is actually included as part of your entry to the Tempio Capitolino, and actually you may even not need a ticket to gain access to it.

Not as well preserved as the Tempio, the Teatro is simply there to be marvelled at. Truth be told it will be a short visit, but given that it comes as part of the Tempio entry it is definitely worth taking in

There are only ruins left in the theater that are not very interesting. Extremely interesting is the nearby Santuario Repubblicano Museum with preserved frescoes from a republican temple as well as the adjacent Capitolium o Tempio Capitolino.

This is a part of the Roman ruins on Via Musei. If you have been in different Italian cities you probably have seen much more interesting theater ruins.
