This theatre was "hiding" behind the facade of house and shops and if you did not know what you were looking for, you could easily miss it. When you go inside, the vastness of this ancient site is the first thing you notice (used to...More

Inmidst of downtown, the well preserved vestiges of a Roman ampitheater which at its peak seated 7'000 people! And also the physical and archeological remnants of an ancient Greek theater. Do go!

This isn't as big as Siracuse or other places by any means but it is worth spending some time on. The only problem is the layout is confusing, the guide leaflet doesn't give much information and the English translation on the walk signs around he...More

We were amazed to see that in the 19th century a beautiful house was built on top of the amphitheatre. The explanations and the video in the house are very interesting.

Their web site site says that the re-opening has been delayed to March 28 because of weather, and they are normally closed on Mondays. This was from a translated page from the authority that runs it.
