This a an extremely impressive and large Roman Amphitheatre, It is true what other reviewers say about not being able to walk amongst the ruins, but there is a path goes goes around and you can get a good view. I think that is understandable...More

The Greek theatre, Roman amphitheatre, Altar of Hieron, and Ear of Dionysius are all in the Archaeological Park with one entry fee of €10. It would have been nice to be able to walk right around the amphitheatre, but the path around one half was...More

The only open patway is around the amphiteater, it is not possible to walk down or get closer to the place. Compared to Rome, where it was possible to access all parts of Colloseum for example, this was really dissaponting visit.

It looked to be so good from a distance but most of the walkway round the amphitheatre was roped off. All we could do was walk along one side and then walk back again. Greek Theatre is much better.

Part of the archaeological park, as a whole, what you see is mind blowing, a very important site, not to be missed.

While not much remains of the immense structure with seating that would have surrounded the amphitheatre, there is enough to appreciate its scale and design and see the tunnels through which the lions and gladiators would have entered the arena. Essential to visit, but do...More

Equally impressive as the Greek Theater, which is the biggest attraction of the archaeological park, because it dates back to the Greek period, centuries before Christ. While not as old as the Greek Amphitheater, it is entirely an antiquity and not used for modern purposes,...More

It is the better preserved part of the park. Good signage, good information. I read somewhere in reviews that the Greek theatre was even better, which was not the case. In general, the accessible area of the park is fairly small, if schedule is tight...More

It's worth coming to this archeological area, where the two theaters as well as some interesting (but dark!) caves have been preserved. Accessibility is very good.
