“Not what I expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Having in mind the Roman amphitheater we see in all movies, this is quite a disappointment.. It looks like a quite small hole in the ground, not much left of the walls, seats, etc. The only part that's interesting is the under-arena part (from were the animals/gladiators were raised into the arena). But there are no explanaitions, so you just look and hope to get it right.

“Worth the Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

It was worth walking to it. It is a little bit removed from the rest of the Ruins but worth going to see - especially if you have never been to a Roman Amphitheater.
