As previous reviewers have mentioned this place is practically left to yourself to enjoy, contemplate and reminisce. The amphitheatre is a slight walk away from the ruins, heading towards the ministry.

We were amazed how quiet this was, no tourists, just a place of quietness, peace and reflection. Archaeologists have worked amazingly hard to discover this area and it looks as though work is continuing. It looks as though the theatre is used for special music events, which would be worthwhile attending. There is a tourist information centre which is very informative- there are lots of pictures and a very good model of the ruins as to how in someone's opinion it looked like, this was very helpful.

Half way between Rome and Pescara lies the Roman ruins of Alba Fusens. What is so fantastic about this place is the church. It had been a Roman temple, the Roman columns are still in place, you can see the Roman tiles on the floor, Get an interpreter so you can really find out about it. There is a coliseum there and many more ruins than I can name here. Well worth the drive off the beaten path. Also just north up the road is Massa D'Alba which has some medieval ruins of a castle.

We have driven past this spot for 25 years on the highway and finally discovered this little gem. A short drive off the autostrada near Avezzano, this is a great 1-2 hour stop with a beautifully preserved amphitheater. Ruins with a stunning mountain view. No tourist crowds and a little bar for espresso near the entrance, Perfect!

If you are with 75km of this location and have any interest in Roman history or architecture then this location is worth a visit. It's actually been over a decade since I was there but due to family in the area we're aware that very little has changed in Alba Fucens since then. Featuring the ruins of an ancient Roman village, an amphitheater and small coliseum it is overlooked by a Catholic church which has gone through history in various forms including as a monestary and temple to Apollo. Like others have pointed out you'll want to make arrangements to view, which were lucky enough to know (again thanks to family). Great small towns/villages in the surrounding area (Alba Fucens, Forme).

Alba Fucens is the largest Roman site (so far excavated) in the Abruzzo and it is beautifully located. It was NOT the easiest to find but once we were there we enjoyed our visit tremendously. It is free to visit which is always nice, and apart from one guided tour there were very few other visitors. Some of the reconstruction was a bit clumsy, with large 'blobs' of concrete holding some things together, and mosaic floors were not sadly not revealed, which seemed a shame as it would be quite easy to excavate and display - but I guess money has run out. A 5 minute walk away is a very impressive amphitheatre. There was space to park and we had a beer in a garden area overlooking the site afterwards. A good couple of hours - but take hat and sunscreen as there was little or no shade to be found.
