Lots of info. More than you think to see underground. Well worth the visit and easy to get to. The ticket gets you into other historical local sites over 2 days so don't throw it away like we did. We were the only people in there at 10.30am on a Wednesday was great.!

This amphitheater is smack dab in a busy part of Pozzuoli. It held 20,000 spectators and is the third largest in Italy. The exterior was looted after the Roman world declined but the interior- which you can walk through- is undamaged. An amazing space to be in. If you like the Coliseum you'll love this. No crowds or "Roman Centurians"... More

This was a revelation. It's a really well preserved amphitheatre. You are left to wander around the site - stand on the top and imagine you are a Roman spectator about to watch the gory sports, imagine the noise, smells and sights. Then go down to the underground areas and image you are about to go about your sport as... More

I truly believe this place should be more famous, because it's very worth visiting! Amazingly preserved and quiet. The underground is spectacular. I highly recommend a visit. Easy acces by Metro linea 2. Just get off at Pozzuoli Solfatara, turn right two times and you are there. Sightseeing shouldn't take you more than an hour. I'm adding a picture of... More

For the €4 entrance fee for this and a handful of other sites in The Phlegrean Fields (valid over a two-day period), one would be hard pressed not to visit. Much, much quieter than The Coliseum Rome, but just as interesting! Park in the large car park about 100 metres further up the hill on the same side as the... More

A €4 fee will give you access to this amazing sight and many others in the Phlegrean Fields archeological area. What is surprising is the lower areas of this amphitheatre, it is very intact and a great example of ancient Roman architecture.

What a well kept secret this amazing structure is. Better than Piazza Bra in Verona, but easier to tour than the Colleseum.

Excellent site to just wander around. We really liked mooching around underground with columns and other masonry littering the floor, best of all. The light filtering down from above was very atmospheric. A very impressive site and well worth the effort to visit.

In remarkably good condition but does not, in my view, compare with El Jem in Tunisia. Also the underground network beneath the arena was not open, for some unspecified reason. We did manage to sneak in but we're almost immediately thrown out by a security guard. This was our first experience of the infuriating Italian habit of not having all... More

Built at about the same time as the Coliseum, this astonishing building could apparently hold 40,000 people and was perhaps half as big again as the extensive remains that can still be seen. The technical issues and problems must have been extraordinary, but the Romans with their typical flair and ability managed it. Moreover, there is so much still to... More
