These remains of the amphitheatre are amazing in the city centre and well preserved, there is also a well preserved Roman Theatre in the city too just a few minuites away

This really cool amphitheater from the 2nd century is just south off the Oronzo Piazza. You can look down at it from the street level. It's still in use today! You can take in this site in about 10 minutes, so incredible to think how...More
