The Amphitheater is quite a walk from the touristic city center. But luckily there are enough streetsigns to point you to the right direction. You will climb uphill through a domestic suburb with quite plain looking houses. But once you have reached a plateau, you...More

This impressive area seated 20,000 people when it was in use. You can also go underneath. We walked from the downtown area, and it's not a short walk, but then you can also walk up into the vineyards for a super view.

We were surprised to see such an impressive amphitheatre and it is well worth a visit. Although it is very different from the amphitheatres at Syracuse and Taormina in Sicily that we have visited, in its own way this is equally impressive

Seeing the Amphitheater helps to bring alive the events, the games and the killings that occurred. Much more impressive than just reading about a Roman amphitheater.

An example of Arena where the warriors fights against animals and other warriors. It is also well conserved the tunnels and the undergrounds.

We expected to see the same type of well maintained Amphitheater as those visited in Rome or in Pula. Unfortunately was not the case as most part had been destroyed and no maintenance was given.

Long walk from the Altstadt, but it was my first opportunity to see an actual amphitheater so I had to go. They were having gladiator reenactments which was fun. It was amazing to see how small the cells were that held slaves/prisoners/gladiators until their time...More

We thought it was a little spendy to get in but received an informational pamphlet and actually had a great time, so well worth the fee! We wandered around, climbed to the top while imagining we were back in Roman times, and went underneath to...More
