Within the Jewish ghetto and absolutely stunning. It looks like this stadium seated thousands and more interesting is that the top levels look like they have been lived in or still are. You can walk through at leisure and it’s free. I’ve been to Roma...More

We enjoyed this site so much as it is like a miniature Colosseum. It was built by Ceaser as a theater and its design concepts were actually used later to build the Colosseum. It looks especially beautiful at night when all lit up. We were...More

This magnificent ancient structure ' older than the coliseum and somewhat similar, is actually an imposing gateway to the jewish ghetto of Rome. You can walk through this imposing site, free of charge and never crowded. A real pleasure, compared to the central ancient attractions...More

This old theatre in Rome is definitely worth a visit. I don't feel as if many people know about it, as it has never been crowded on the 3 separate occasions that I have visited it.

Another very interesting piece of Roman history. No cost and easy to get to. We stopped by on our way through to the Jewish Ghetto area.

We were walking aimlessly around the city and stumbled upon this amazingly interesting building. The blending of the different stages of the building over the years is so fascinating.

I never used the hop on/off bus but as I dodged them I noticed the theatre across the road. It’s well worth a detour to have a nosey around. As with a great deal of sites in Rome it’s interesting to see how the old...More

Wonderful to 'stumble upon' as we did and totally free. There are other amazing and free to look at roman buildings nearby, viz: Portico of Octavia, Templi del Foro Boario. There is no possibility of entry, unless you live in one of the appartments on...More

I didn't go looking for these ruins and stumbled upon them through the use of the hop on & off tour bus. These remains of what must have been a impressive building are one of the many constant reminders of the age of this city....More

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
