Our visit happened to be right around sunset, the light was spectacular. Truly incredible to stand in this ancient teatro and try to imagine it in its prime.

The Roman Theater and Amphitheater really are worth a visit. Take advantage of the €15 pass and see more in the city. It was impressive. Highly recommended

This is a large site to explore and needs time...but our time was limited in Merida. The weather was extremely hot and the site very dusty...but the Roman remains extremely impressive to see and well preserved. Definitely a must if you are in Merida!

The tour office was very efficient and service was friendly. Seeing a nearly complete 2000+ year old Roman arena and theater was an awe-inspiring event. The guide signs were very informative and easy to read. 100% recommended.

Majestic, full of history and culture! If you love history or stories, this is a place you shouldn't miss. You will feel transported in time and expect a gladiator or a Roman philosopher to jump out from behind the columns to surprise you any time.

We walked around the ruins by ourselves but there were guided tours being held too if you want more information. Lots of signs in English explaining the different things that happened here with coloured statues of the different types of gladiators. Take your time and...More

I managed it solo in two days. However suggested routes are difficult to follow. Would suggest 3 days but with children might what to think about 4 days.

As most people have recommended, I would agree that an overnight stay is worth it. There are many things to see and do and obviously trying the local food is part of the experience of travel. Enjoy!

The roof is missing, the beds have gone and the swim rooms dried out 2000 years ago.
