This is a wonderful site and it is a shame that other reviewers have incorrectly said there is no access. The theatre is not at all far from the main commercial and tourist parts of the city. Once found, climb up the steps to the...More

This is a small, by Roman standards Amphitheatre, and semi complete. Unfortunately you can only look from the Street and not walk around the Amphitheatre. Still worth a look.

On my last day in Trieste, I walked to Piazza de Unita and took a backstreet on my way to the hotel and stumbled upon this ancient Roman Ruin. I was pleasantly surprised by how well it had been preserved, apparently found buried while excavating....More

Roman arena that is easy to find in the historic part of the city. You can view the theater from the road, but can't enter it.
