You can walk half of the way round the circumference of this structure. It would be good if someone could cut or weed kill the grass as it obscures a large part of the central area. It was obviously possible to visit far more of...More

This is an amazing Amphitheater that was built about 2,000 years ago by the Romans. It could originally seat 20,000 people and was much taller than what remains today. It is very interesting to see all the seats, stairways and tunnels and recognize the many...More

A major tourist site, one of the largest Roman theaters I have ever seen. Go and imagine what it used to be. Good for photos.
