The structure and the exterior are superb and very well maintained, highlighting the engineering prowess of the Romans. Unfortunately, as the arena housed the town within for centuries before being in regular use for the last 100+ years for contemporary events and bull fights the...More

You can park nearby. I went by train, but saw plenty of parking, most on street and free. There was definitely free parking on there road by the railway station which is about a 5-10 minute walk.

Wifi? At a Roman amphitheatre? No. There is neither free nor paid WiFi at the amphitheatre.
