All reviews worth a visit audio guide roman amphitheatre tucked away small cafe piece of history cup of coffee ticket office town centre back in the day lots of parking entrance fee interesting place little gem lovely site another couple several languages
Simply the Ruins of a large Roman Amphitheater, no real attempt to give it mass appeal or visual interpretations and probably all the better for that. Lovely stroll through the city to find these ruins.

It’s still in good condition and you can really get feel for how...More
