Entry fees very reasonable and half price discount for under 25s too. Really interesting place to walk around and unusual being right between so many buildings makes it feel all the more authentic and untouched. We spent quite a lot of time here just sitting...More

For every tourists it is important read "OPEN" every day, especially on Sunday. Terrible customer care. Gestione terribile del sito archeologico e dei clienti. Vergogna

Hidden between the streets the Greek theater shows its history to the people that want to discover it. It is a great place to find out more about Roman culture and history and also about the Italian culture.

Their web site site says that the re-opening has been delayed to March 28 because of weather, and they are normally closed on Mondays. This was from a translated page from the authority that runs it.
