The Amphitheater it's a part of a bigger complex, just near the Roma Theatre offering a glimpse on the ancient (and quite unexpected) history of the city. For history lovers this cannot be missed.

Excellent history lesson, very well preserved space and explanations. Be careful with the heat in Summer (take water and sunscreen)

Superb views of the amphitheatre. It is a very humbling experience to witness and experience this gem of Roman architecture still in operation every year as part of the Festival in Merida.

It's off the main central city and a walk, but it is free and a Roman ruin. It's open and larger than an American football field. there are some other ruins near there which makes for an interesting walk.

It is truly an amazing and wonderful place to visit. A great restoration effort. Sitting in the Amphitheater makes it easy to imagine what it was like when built.

Rivals the Coliseum in Rome, and much better access. Buried for many years, the province has done a great job of uncovering the ancient ruins.
