Smaller version of what you will experience in Rome, but still as impressive in its own right. Take your time and try to imagine what this was like centuries ago. Only 3 euro entry fee and definitely worth it. Self-guided. Would do this again.

Saw these ruins of a Roman theater from above only - which was fine for me. There are tour guides that can give you information on these during part of their walking tour, our audio tour only gave a very brief description of this. The background view of this made a beautiful setting. Amazing how old these are and still... More

We visited the Roman theatre but were told we could actually walk among the ruins ... after paying for the tickets. So we got to observe the ruins (which are very small btw) from a distance. To be honest: there is a (free, I believe) panoramic view just before getting to the ruins. You may as well visit that instead.

We stopped to view the site of the ruins from above. It's hard to imagine that they have existed for almost 2000 years. We didn't have a chance to explore the ruins but will next time.

These ruins are unique as they can be viewed from above in a great setting on a background of beautiful rolling Tuscan hills. This gives you an appreciation of incredible talents of Roman architects who masterfully used the open space and combined it with a beauty of the nature. Magnificent and very spiritual place: we all got energized! Too bad... More

It is not easy to find it. Find the information centre and take a map. It is better to see it from the top of the road because you see the whole shape of amphitheater. Entrance for those who are interested in old roman times and their culture

This incredible site includes the Roman Theatre built 1st century BC and the Roman Baths constructed 3rd century AD. People are right in saying you don't need to access the site and there is no doubt, from the road looking below you do have a better overall appreciation regarding the layout of the Theatre and Baths. On the other hand,... More

This was a truly unexpected surprise on our honeymoon. We went to Volterra not knowing much about it. When we came upon these ruins, it was a surprise---a very good one! The viewing area is expansive (you can see it all from any vantage point), and beautiful! Volterra overall was one of our favorite cities. Truly stunning, and very walk-able.... More

Beautiful Roman theatre, very easy to imagine in its day as a bustling and busy place. Excellent state of preservation.
