We enjoyed walking through and around this wonderful amphitheatre. With unrestricted access it is easy to imagine oneself here during the events in Roman times, in fact I could almost here the roaring of the crowd. Well worth the visit.

If a plague swept the earth and there were only a few left standing, the Colosseum would be an incredible place to visit. As it is, the Colosseum is packed like a can of sardines and you might as well just look at pictures of...More

You can almost still hear the roar of gladiators and lions here... Apparently the inspiration for the Colosseum in Rome (though I'm not sure of the truth of that) this is the 3rd largest ampitheatre in Italy, and it really is a breath-taking feat of...More

Another interesting site included in the multi site ticket with Baia. Supposedly the biggest amphitheatre. Beautifully preserved. Quiet when we visited. Parked in the nearby public car park but if you buy the Campania Artecard you can get there by train.

This little gem tucked away in Pozzuoli isn't overcrowded with tourists because nobody knows about it. They keep what they have found in situ so you can see all the ruined bits as well as what is standing. You can walk on the floor of...More
