Definitely worth going to see, we bought the three day ticket which gives you access to several sites in volterra over a three day period, well worth the money.. and don't miss the walk around the walls overlooking the theatre

Site of roman theatre is relatively complete including some standing pillars. There is a book available on the excavations on the site. Good views from above.

On a warm night, you could easily imagine actors, spectators coming in and out of this place, and in the surroundings, the lively activities of a Roman city. Really inspiring

This wonderful ancient Roman theatre can be viewed at ground level but is spectacular from above and well signposted how to get there. Well worth a visit as is Volterra
