A large, early Roman theatre, technically commenced in the late Republic, this edifice must have been something in its time. Today it remains significantly intact through a variety of repurposings - from theatre to quarry to fortress to apartment building. Much of the exterior retains...More

A lesser Colosseum, but way older, easier to 'take in' and very well preserved. Nice to see something so old still standing, and still celebrating what it was built for.....Not the slaughter of slaves, criminals, Christians etc., but just the performing Arts. Sadly, it's not...More

Marcellan’s theatre predates the Colosseum. Conceived by Julius Caesar and completed under Augustus, it could hold 20,000 spectators. It is currently used as a summer concert venue. Just beautiful

We discovered this gem when we had a meeting point nearby. The musical offerings were great. We wished we could have had more than one night to enjoy them.

This open air theater was finished in 13BC near the end of the Roman Republic. It could hold as many as 20,000 spectators. It is also one of the earliest buildings in Rome to use fired bricks (just introduced from the Greek world). Roman fired...More

Unusually, this Ancient Roman structure is less popular than the Roman Coliseum. This similar structure is just a theater, older and built before Christ, and is much better preserved than the Roman Coliseum. I think it’s during the second week of April called: Culture Week,...More

If you are in the area you should stop and get a few pictures. It is history. A tour guide would be able to tell you more but it is an ancient theater with history of its own.
