This is a really well preserved little roman amphitheatre but suffers a bit from being open to one of the city’s main thoroughfares, thus removing any air of mystery. The upside of this is that you can view from the footpath totally for free and...More

This is not the largest amphitheatre in the world but is very well preserved and interesting to see. Although it is fenced off, it is easy to view from the railings or benches on the pavement which assure that you are very close. Definitely worth...More

This is buried in the middle of Trieste and could easily be missed. It can be viewed from the road. It is a shame that more is not made of it in terms of displays, models etc.

This is small and was closed off when we were thee but you can see a lot from outside. It is very interesting and deserving of a few moments of your time.

As a 2,000 year-old Roman amphitheater, it's in pretty good condition. It's smaller than most, but still impressive. However, some 'jobsworth' at the local council has approved placing 5 modern sculptures of a man shouting, carefully placed to resemble theater-goers of 2,000 years ago. What...More

This well preserved Roman theatre is a short walk from the Grand Canal or Piazza de la Unita d'Italia. It's not open to the public to visit but you can get a good view from street level. Currently a group of statues have been arranged...More

OK to have a look if you are walking past but there are better Roman theatres elsewhere in Europe than this one.

It's a nice theatre that you walk past, as it is freely visible in between modern city life. I have seen more authentic theaters though.
