By walking around the central area you'll take a side street and there, right on your left is this well-preserved Roman Theatre for all to see. It's amazing and approachable.

The site has been unsympathetically preserved during the fascist period. Much of the structure has been reconstructed with modern materials. Shame.

Finding a roman theatre in the middle of Trieste is quiet a surprise. It's a nice little theatre and you can admire it from the sidewalk.

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 amphitheatre is small but much of it has survived the centuries since the fall if Rome. Unfortunately there is no access to the site, so it has to be viewed from the street through wire mesh fencing. But still worth going to take a...More
