The highlight of our recent visit to the Museo Archeologico Nazionale Di Spoleto was to be able to access and view the Roman Theatre up close. It is incredible to think that this structure, believed to have been constructed in the middle of the first century BC, is still used today for musical events. It was a real privilege to... More

One of the surprising things about this place is that it was identified relatively recently (something more than a century ago), and unearthed only a few decades ago; it had been underground for centuries after having been built at the time of Augustus emperor. Small but well proportioned and aesthetically beautiful. A good part of the stage is still below... More

Sure, there are lots of bigger Roman arenas, but we found this one to be almost as interesting as the larger one in Nîmes. A Roman town had the amenities of Rome's larger cities on a smaller scale. If you can, catch an evening performance there, but rent extra cushions to be comfortable. Depending on the weather, also bring something... More

As Roman theatres go, this doesn't rate that highly, although certainly one of the main site in this lovely town. The entrance fee is only a Euro, although the best views looking down upon the theatre from the Piazza dela Libertà are free.

A classic example of simple amphitheatre design that shows there has been no need to update the blueprint since Ancient Roman times. A wonderful museum upstairs, too, with a "Last Supper" fresco, showing the menu that night was…..squirrel!

A great museum for telling the Roman history of Spoleto. Since 1956, the amphitheatre was re dug up and uncovered. It is amazing that a convent was built over the site. This is a museum not to be missed when in Spoleto

. . . so how could we not visit. It is part of the well organized and arranged museum of Roman times in Spoleto and we spent a good couple of hours visiting - time flew and we were surprised how much we'd seen.

All of the seating area and many other elements have been restaurant to the point that it is more a reproduction than a historic monument. Despite this, the site does no give a real sense of the grandeur of the original structure

The Romans really knew how to situate An amphitheater ! Like Taormina in Sicily that frames Mt Etna from the stage, this beautifully frames a forested mountain backdrop . That alone makes it a great place to sit and imagine yourself at at a play and there were no crowds on a Saturday afternoon in September. The theatre is reintegrated... More
