A small Roman amphitheatre, interesting in itself, but pales when compared to the three amazing Greek temples nearby. Only half of the amphitheatre has been excavated as an idiotic civil engineer built a road across the other half in 1930.

It was only 10 euros for the museum and the site (highly recommend checking out the museum, even if it is only to see “The Diver”. This fresco is huge, much larger than I ever imagined it being. I enjoyed checking out other items in the museum also but this was my favorite.). Anyway, the amphitheater is in pretty good shape. You can walk around the inside bowl of it but you cannot go into the tunnels of into the seating area. Only part of it still exists. You can get good views of it from the road at the fence it you want to get another angle / view of it.

So it's not as well preserved as Pompeii but this is a gem, with about half the site uncovered with walls around waist height giving you a feel for the houses people lived in 2100 years ago. The temples are remarkable Greek architecture. Worth a visit

Interesting site on way between the two temple complexes, but no need to linger or loiter, at least there is some shade in the arch entrance if hot

The amphitheater was interesting though not as impressive as other parts of the Paestum ruins. It was unfortunate that the highway cuts through the amphitheater.

The best view of the amphitheatre is from the road outside the fence as you are higher. There is not a lot left of what was a place built by the Romans around the first century.

Real gem in a lovely little town - do wish there was more around it though such as more than one cafe.

Built during the roman times and thus an addition to the rest of the area dating mostly to the greek times, it is still well preserved though two thirds of it were buried under a road constructed during the 30s of the last century.

You don't really get the feeling of the amphitheatre till you walk in and go to the far end and look back. Bearing in mind two thirds of the building is under the road it is still really impressive

The amphitheatre is built in a normal Roman pattern. Only the western half is visible as in 1930 AD a road was built across the site, burying the eastern half. Th amphitheatre was filled during Roman times and not used for centuries. You can visit this when visiting the Archaeological Park.
