Dating from the 1st century the theatre remained buried for centuries under the ground. It has been restored so that its original structure is totally visible. The Amphitheatre was a great space also for the gladiatorial games...

Much history here. It's a nice place to rest on the solid ancient seating, contemplating what must have taken place in bygone times. The theater is located right across from the tourist office. The first century Roman Theater was excavated in 1891. It is still...More

This is a small Roman theater that has been reasonably well preserved. It is outdoors and easily walked. You might imagine the ancient Spoletans collecting to be entertained by an athletic event, or maybe the ancient version of the Rolling Stones. It does not look...More

2000 years old and still being used. This is worth the long climb up to the top of Spoleto on its own. Throw in some great nearby restaurants and spectacular views. A must see if you're in the region.

Sure, there are lots of bigger Roman arenas, but we found this one to be almost as interesting as the larger one in Nîmes. A Roman town had the amenities of Rome's larger cities on a smaller scale. If you can, catch an evening performance...More

As Roman theatres go, this doesn't rate that highly, although certainly one of the main site in this lovely town. The entrance fee is only a Euro, although the best views looking down upon the theatre from the Piazza dela Libertà are free.

A classic example of simple amphitheatre design that shows there has been no need to update the blueprint since Ancient Roman times. A wonderful museum upstairs, too, with a "Last Supper" fresco, showing the menu that night was…..squirrel!

A great museum for telling the Roman history of Spoleto. Since 1956, the amphitheatre was re dug up and uncovered. It is amazing that a convent was built over the site. This is a museum not to be missed when in Spoleto
